FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
THE VIRGINIA CONSERVATIVE PARTY ENDORSES – CUCCINELLI, JACKSON, AND OBENSHAIN
Reston, VA (October 17, 2013) —The Virginia Conservative Party, is pleased to announce its endorsement of a trio of exceptional candidates for Governor, Lieutenant Governor, and Attorney General of Virginia. As conservatives, we seek out and support candidates committed to limited government; personal and fiscal responsibility; honesty and integrity. After careful scrutiny of the field of candidates for these important state-wide offices, we are convinced that Ken Cuccinelli, E.W. Jackson, and Mark Obenshain are best suited to lead Virginia through the challenges we will face in the next several years.
Virginia will play a critical role in the fight to preserve the rights consigned to the state by the Constitution of the United States. Indeed, Virginia is, and will remain, a battleground state in the fight for the very soul of our Republic. As we continue to oppose the policies of progressive-socialist ideologues bent on “fundamentally transforming” the nation, these three men have the intellect, grit, tenacity, and fortitude to represent the best interests of the citizens of the Commonwealth.
Ken Cuccinelli is a seasoned conservative with a proven track record in the Legislature and as Attorney General. He is a respected leader both in Virginia and throughout the country. Ken is a resolute defender of states’ rights, tirelessly fighting against the federal government’s unconstitutional overreach. As Attorney General, he was first to file suit to fend off the intrusive and unconstitutional individual mandate in the Affordable Care Act (aka ObamaCare). Ken has also shown a passionate desire to protect our most vulnerable citizens as evidenced by his strong stance against domestic violence and his advocacy on behalf of the mentally ill. He clearly understands the roles of the Commonwealth and local government in that protection. Based on his record, we believe Virginians can rely on Ken to uphold the longstanding foundational principles of Virginia.
E.W. Jackson is our choice for Lieutenant Governor because he is a true conservative who has exhibited statesman-like character over a long and respected career. Through our analysis and discussions with E.W, we are convinced that he understands the issues important to Virginians. His positions on the issues are unmistakably clear. We believe he is a man of integrity; we trust him to be an honest and committed servant of the people.
Mark Obenshain’s record as an experienced attorney and legislator speaks volumes about his character and his qualifications for the office of Attorney General. He shares our conservative values and vision for Virginia. As the next Attorney General, we are confident he will make every effort to protect and defend our constitutionally-guaranteed rights, and the freedom and liberty we enjoy as citizens the Commonwealth and the United States of America.
In the upcoming November election, it is absolutely essential to elect principled conservatives to lead Virginia. We are confident that informed, truth-seeking voters will conclude, as the Virginia Conservative Party has, that Ken Cuccinelli as Governor, E.W. Jackson as Lieutenant Governor, and Mark Obenshain as Attorney General are the best choices for all Virginians.
