Centreville, VA – Senator Richard Stuart (Fredericksburg) endorsed Tim Hugo’s campaign for Lieutenant Governor today continuing Hugo’s trend of consolidating conservative support behind his bid for the Commonwealth’s second highest office.

“I am proud to add my name to the list of conservatives endorsing Tim’s campaign,” said Stuart. “If my caucus picks up one seat in 2023 the Lt. Governor will be a tie breaking vote. It is vitally important we elect someone who will be a reliable conservative and help our Republican Senate Caucus advance pro-taxpayer, pro-small business, and pro-law enforcement legislation. I know Tim will meet that challenge.”

“Senator Stuart served our nation as a member of the United States Marine Corps and continues to serve our Commonwealth dutifully as a member of the Virginia Senate,” said Hugo. “His support means a great deal to me and I am honored to have him on our team. I look forward to working with him to champion policies that help Virginia businesses and families.”
