Grassroots Coalesce Around Obenshain

07/13/2012 | News | Campaign News

Today is an exciting day here at Team Obenshain, and as Mark's political director, I wanted to share the good news with you.

A few moments ago, the campaign released the first round of endorsements for Mark in his bid for Attorney General. Let me tell you, it's quite a list. Team Obenshain now includes:

  • Our National Committeeman
  • One former RPV Chairman
  • Six District Chairmen
  • Thirty members of RPV's State Central Committee
  • Over 1,000 grassroots leaders from 83 units across Virginia

Take a look at what Republican leaders are saying about Mark Obenshain:

"Mark Obenshain is a principled lifelong conservative leader. I am proud to endorse him for Attorney General." - Don Huffman, Western Vice Chairman and Former RPV Chairman

"We need leaders like Mark Obenshain, who has been the standard-bearer for individual liberty in the Virginia Senate. I know that, as our next Attorney General, he will continue to stand firm in our fight for freedom." - Chris Stearns, Third District Chairman

"Conventions are won by the candidate who best connects with and mobilizes the grassroots. The grassroots are making it clear: that candidate is Mark Obenshain." - Marie Quinn, Seventh District SCC Representative

"Mark Obenshain is a once-in-a-lifetime candidate the entire party can unite behind." - Kevin Gentry, RPV Eastern Vice Chairman 

Conservative leaders are coalescing behind Mark Obenshain, as you can see in the list of early endorsements below. As a campaign guy, I know that it all comes down to grassroots, which is why I'm ecstatic about the 1,000 grassroots activists who have joined our team. And I wonder: is your name on the list yet?

When you add your name, you'll be joining a National Committeeman, District Chairs, State Central members and the over 1,000 activists who have already joined Team Obenshain.
