Congressman Boucher Endorses Jody Wagner for Lt. Governor

Today, Lt. Governor candidate Jody Wagner held a conference call with Congressman Rick Boucher to announce his support for her campaign.  Boucher is the second Congressman to endorse Wagner, along with Glenn Nye (VA-2).

(ABINGDON, VA)—U.S. Representative Rick Boucher released the following statement today endorsing Jody Wagner’s candidacy for Lieutenant Governor: “I am very pleased to announce my endorsement of Jody Wagner for the Democratic nomination for Lieutenant Governor. Having served as Treasurer of Virginia during the Administration of Governor Mark Warner and as Governor Tim Kaine’s Secretary of Finance, Jody has a unique understanding of our Commonwealth’s economy and will make use of that experience as our next Lieutenant Governor. In addition, Jody is a small business owner, and she deeply understands the challenges that face small business owners on a daily basis. My highest priority as a Member of Congress is creating new job opportunities and fostering economic growth in the Ninth Congressional District. Jody will be my partner in those efforts once she is elected. I am extremely confident of Jody Wagner’s abilities, and I look forward to actively campaigning for her nomination and subsequent election.”
