Former RPV Chairman John Whitbeck Endorses Tim Hugo for Lieutenant Governor


Centreville, VA – John Whitbeck, a former Chairman of the Republican Party of Virginia, added his name today to the list of prominent conservatives endorsing Tim Hugo’s campaign for Lieutenant Governor.

“I am supporting Tim Hugo’s campaign for Lieutenant Governor because I believe Tim is the best candidate to unite our party and defeat the Democrats in November,” said Whitbeck. “Tim will help deliver vital votes in Northern Virginia where Republicans have historically struggled. I am asking all of my fellow Republicans to join me in uniting behind his candidacy because the stakes are too high to lose at the polls this November.”

“I am grateful to have John’s support as we work to end the Democrats one-party rule in our Commonwealth,” said Hugo. “We need to get our economy reopened, our kids back to school, and refocus our attention on the issues affecting families in Virginia. That’s going to take a change in leadership and it’s why I am running for Lieutenant Governor. We simply cannot allow the Democrats to continue pushing their failed liberal agenda while families in Virginia continue to struggle.”
