Chesterfield Sheriff Karl Leonard Endorses Tim Hugo for Lt. Governor

Centreville, VA – Chesterfield County Sheriff Karl Leonard added his name today to the list of prominent Republican officials supporting Tim Hugo’s campaign for Lieutenant Governor. Sheriff Leonard cited Hugo’s consistent support for law enforcement as the reason for his endorsement.

“As a member of the House of Delegates, Tim Hugo consistently voted to support our men and women in law enforcement,” said Sheriff Leonard. “Unfortunately, politicians in Richmond are working to undo much of what Tim accomplished and instead make it harder for those of us in law enforcement to do our job. That’s why we need leaders like Tim Hugo who will fight back by standing up for our law enforcement officers. Tim is the law and order candidate and I am proud to endorse his campaign.”

“I am honored to have Sheriff Leonard on our team,” said Hugo. “As the Sheriff of one of Virginia’s largest counties, Karl has a keen understanding of the issues facing our communities and law enforcement officers. I look forward to working with him to advance policies that support, not hinder, our men and women in blue. The Democrats’ radical anti-police agenda is a threat to our Commonwealth, and that’s why they must be defeated this November.”
