The Spanberger campaign just announced the following endorsement:
HENRICO, VA —Today, Delegate Lamont Bagby announced his endorsement of Abigail Spanberger’s candidacy for Virginia’ 7th Congressional District seat. Del. Bagby, who represents the 74th Legislative District in the House of Delegates, joins a sizeable chorus of elected Democratic supporters at the state, local and federal levels.
“Abigail Spanberger is a superb candidate who’s shown without a doubt that she has what it takes to win and to serve,” claimed Bagby. “She and her team have brought one of the most reliably red districts in the Commonwealth into serious contention. Not just anyone can pull that off.”
Delegate Bagby’s district includes the City of Richmond, Charles City County, and parts of Henrico County. Its proximity to the 7th Congressional District means the two could be serving many of the same people, a prospect that Del. Bagby has looked forward to since their introduction.
“I first met Abigail in the spring of 2017, before she had officially announced her candidacy,” Bagby said. “I could tell even then that she had something special. She wasn’t campaigning, but her intelligence, charisma, kindness and sincerity were readily apparent. Our shared constituents will be in good hands with her in Congress, and I look forward to helping her get there.”
“I’m incredibly appreciative of Del. Bagby’s endorsement,” said Spanberger. “Our communities are stronger when our elected leaders work together, and I will be truly fortunate to have a dedicated public servant like Lamont as a state-level ally when I’m in Congress.”
