CONGRESSMAN BOBBY SCOTT ENDORSES JODY WAGNER FOR LT. GOVERNOR

LONGTIME REPRESENTATIVE PROVIDES BOOST IN HAMPTON ROADS, RICHMOND

RICHMOND – Today Congressman Bobby Scott announced his endorsement of Jody Wagner for Lt. Governor.  Scott, who has represented Virginia’s Third district since 1992, becomes the third member of the Commonwealth’s Congressional delegation to endorse Wagner, joining Congressmen Glenn Nye (VA-2) and Rick Boucher (VA-9).  His support provides Wagner, the former Treasurer of the Commonwealth and Secretary of Finance, with a critical boost in the Hampton Roads and Richmond regions ahead of the June 9th primary.
 
Said Scott: “I’m proud to stand with Jody Wagner in her race for Lt. Governor.  As a long-time legislator in the Virginia Assembly and Congress, I have great respect for Jody’s deep experience as Treasurer and Secretary of Finance.  I saw her work hand-in-hand with Mark Warner and Tim Kaine to straighten out the state’s budget, maintain our critical AAA bond rating, create new jobs, and invest billions more in education.”
 
Wagner thanked Scott, saying “The Commonwealth of Virginia is blessed to have a leader like Bobby Scott, and I’m truly humbled to have his support.  For more than two decades, he has fought to improve our education system, advocated for our veterans and military families, and stood up for Virginia’s workers.  It will be an honor to work with Congressman Scott as Lt. Governor, so we can achieve our mutual goals of creating new jobs, growing the economy, improving our public education system, and providing greater access to health care for Virginia’s children.”
