Biden Releases Slate of Virginia Endorsements

President Joe Biden and Vice President Kamala Harris issued endorsements for 23 Virginia Democratic candidates ahead of the state’s legislative elections.

The endorsements come as every Virginia legislature seat is in play, The Hill reported Saturday.

The list of endorsements spans crucial swing districts and include Schuyler VanValkenburg, Clint Jenkins, Aaron Rouse, Monty Mason, Joel Griffin, Danica Roem, Russet Perry in the Senate and Michele Maldonado, Joshua Thomas, Travis Nembhard, Atoosa Reaser, Marty Martinez, Amy Laufer, Rodney Willett, Joshua Cole, Shelly Simonds, Stephen Miller-Pitts, Kimberly Pope Adams, Nadarius Clark, Karen Jenkins, Phil Hernandez, Kelly Fowler, Michael Feggans in the House.
