FREDERICKSBURG, VA— Today, Virginia State Senator Amanda Chase (R-Chesterfield) announced her endorsement of Senator Bryce Reeves (R-Spotsylvania) to be the next Lieutenant Governor of Virginia. Senator Chase currently represents the 11th District and co-founded the Transparency Caucus. Below you'll find the remarks from her endorsement:
"On Tuesday, June 13, 2017, between the hours of 6am and 7pm, you will have the opportunity to vote for Virginia’s next Governor, Lieutenant Governor and Attorney General at your usual local voting precinct. Many people have asked me who they should vote for and who I am supporting. The decision hasn’t been easy as I’ve worked closely with many of those running. They are not only colleagues, they are my friends whom I’ve served with in the trenches.
As I’ve already announced, I will be voting Ed Gillespie for Governor, and John Adams for Attorney General. Today, I’m announcing my endorsement of Senator Bryce Reeves for Lieutenant Governor.
I’ve known Senator Bryce Reeves and his wife Anne for over a decade and before he was a state senator. Bryce is a small business owner, veteran, former detective and winner of the NRA Defender of Freedom Award. No one works harder and is more conscientious, dedicated and committed than Bryce. He’s a humble man whose faith in God and conviction guide him in both his daily life and his voting.
The Lieutenant Governor also presides over the senate and often casts tie breaking tie votes. For that reason, I’m supporting the candidate with the most conservative voting record- Senator Bryce Reeves, who consistently votes to support traditional family values.
It’s also important to vote for a candidate that has served in the Senate and understands Senate rules and procedures which are very different than in the House. Senator Reeves has served in the Senate for 6 years and has chaired several committees. For the past 2 years, I’ve had the privilege of serving on committees with him and appreciate his attention to detail, his commitment to excellence and thoughtful vision for the Commonwealth.
While there are several experienced and talented legislators vying for the Lieutenant Govenor’s seat, on June 13, I will be voting for Senator Bryce Reeves."
Bryce Reeves said, "I am extremely honored and proud to have Senator Chase's endorsement. Amanda is a true champion of transparency and always fights to protect our conservative values. I look forward to campaigning alongside her and am excited to have her on Team Reeves!"
