Centreville, VA – Today, Virginia Senate Republican Caucus Chairman Ryan McDougle (Hanover) added his name to the growing list of conservatives endorsing Tim Hugo’s campaign for Lieutenant Governor.

“I sat next to Tim on his very first day in the Virginia House of Delegates, and I have been proud to call him a friend ever since,” said McDougle. “I am endorsing Tim’s campaign for Lieutenant Governor because I know Virginia conservatives can count on him to stand up for our small businesses, oppose additional tax increases on our families, and defend our Second Amendment rights. Tim will bring our party together so that we can win in November and end the Democrats’ one-party rule.”

“I am honored to have Senator McDougle’s endorsement and the support of conservatives like him from across our Commonwealth,” said Hugo. “The Democrats’ anti-business and anti-taxpayer policies are destroying the Old Dominion and I am running to say enough is enough. As Lieutenant Governor, I’ll stand with conservatives like Senator McDougle against these attacks on our economy and on our constitutional rights.”

Tim Hugo has also been endorsed by Delegate Rob Bell (Albemarle), House of Delegates Caucus Chair Kathy Byron (Bedford), Del. Mark Cole (Spotsylvania), Del. Matt Fariss (Campbell), Del. Buddy Fowler (Hanover), Del. Margaret Ransone (Westmoreland), Del. Nick Rush (Montgomery), Del. Lee Ware (Powhatan), and Sen. Bill DeSteph (Virginia Beach).

Tim is an Army veteran and former Virginia Delegate where he rose to be the third ranking member of the House of Delegates. As a Delegate of 17 years, Tim amassed a reliably conservative voting record. Tim is running for Lieutenant Governor to position Virginia for a 21st Century economy, bring about a strong economic recovery from the COVID-19 pandemic, defend Virginians’ Constitutional rights, hold the line on additional tax increases, and stand up for the men and women in law enforcement.
