Centreville, VA – Congressman Morgan Griffith (VA-9) added his name today to the list of prominent Virginia conservatives who are endorsing Tim Hugo’s campaign for Lieutenant Governor. Hugo has also been endorsed by Congressman Ben Cline (VA-6).

“What we are seeing from the Democrats in Washington and in Richmond is a complete assault on the freedoms and values the people in Southwestern Virginia hold dear,” said Griffith. “We have got to fight back against these liberal Democrats and their radical agenda and it starts by ending the complete control they have over our state government in Richmond.”

“I am endorsing Tim Hugo for Lieutenant Governor because I know he has what it takes to win this November and because he will be a leader for all of Virginia including us here in Southwest. Tim shares our pro-life values and commitment to protecting the Second Amendment. I know he will fight for good jobs, affordable energy, less government, and more freedom in Richmond just as I have in Washington. I strongly encourage all of my fellow conservatives to join me in uniting behind his campaign.”

“Congressman Griffith has spent his life fighting for the conservative cause and I am proud to have his support in my race for Lieutenant Governor,” said Hugo. “Right now, Democrats have complete control over the Presidency, Congress, and every level of our state government. Families and businesses in our Commonwealth are suffering because of it.”

“When I left office, Virginia was the number one state in the nation for business and one of the top states in the nation for both K-12 and higher education. Today, nearly one in five small businesses have shut their doors permanently because of Democrat-led lockdowns of our economy and our students are falling behind because of Democrat-led lockouts of our classrooms. It’s time we end these misguided policies and get back to the conservative policies that made Virginia one of the best states in the nation to live, work, and raise a family.”
