Campaign Update


Conservative Leaders Back Obenshain

12/31/2012 | News |

The strength of a party, a movement, or a campaign can be found in the trenches—in those who are recognized as leaders, not because of any titles or positions they may have picked up along the way, but because they know what it means to champion our values and our causes not from an office, but on the ground. 

They’ve made innumerable phone calls at headquarters, knocked on countless doors, and stuffed envelopes. They’ve served on their local committee, joined and often led conservative organizations, and articulated our principles. 

They’re the sort of people you find on a winning campaign. That’s why I’m so pleased to roll out this partial list of conservative leaders who are backing my candidacy.* 

  • Kay Coles James, President, Gloucester Institute; former Dean, Regent School of Government; Board of Trustees, Heritage Foundation
  • Mike Farris, Chancellor, Patrick Henry College; Founding President, Home School Legal Defense Association
  • Morton Blackwell, Republican National Committeeman
  • Ron Robinson, President, Young America's Foundation
  • Michelle Easton, President, Clare Boothe Luce Policy Institute
  • Donna Holt, property rights activist
  • Melvin Adams, President, Renewanation

Of course, that list doesn’t even begin to scratch the surface. I’m humbled by the number of grassroots activists across the Commonwealth who have committed their support, and I hope that you will number yourself among them by clicking here to join Team Obenshain.

Before Christmas, I shared a list of members of the Republican Party of Virginia’s Executive Committee that are publicly supporting my bid for Attorney General; click here if you missed it.

But campaigns are won and lost in the trenches. That’s why I need you on my team. As we the clock ticks down on 2013, I need you to make a contribution to my campaign and to tell me that you support me. Even a few dollars can go a long way, so please contribute today!

  • I had the honor of speaking at the Trooper Harry Lee Henderson Bridge Dedication ceremony earlier this week in Warren County.  I was proud to patron the legislation that names the bridge over Route 624 after Trooper Henderson.  Trooper Henderson was a dedicated public servant who paid the ultimate sacrifice while in the line of duty.  Thank you to all the men and women in law enforcement who work each day to keep us safe!

  • Few events are more rewarding or inspiring to attend than a naturalization ceremony. Today I proudly participated in a ceremony where a Federal Judge administered the oath and 46 new Americans stood and recited the Pledge of Allegiance for the first time as citizens of this great nation. These new citizens, their family and friends packed the courtroom for this important milestone in their lives. If you doubt the excitement of these new citizens, take a look at the smiles on the faces of the Morales family - Americans from Bridgewater!
