Gillespie Rolls Out MASSIVE Endorsement List

amazing_grace_petitions [1]

Gillespie’s Let’s Grow Virginia PAC has unleashed perhaps one of the longest endorsement lists I have read in Virginia politics in a long… LONG time… and following a mammoth list of endorsements rolled out in early December.  The e-mail to Gillespie supporters is as follows:

In just a little over one month since Republicans from across the Commonwealth met in Hot Springs for the RPV Advance, A LOT has happened here at Let’s Grow, Virginia!

First though, let’s recap some of the great news that came from the Advance weekend in early December:

Let’s Grow, Virginia rolled out a list of 217 grassroots activists and leaders from every corner of our state. The list included 30 members of our State Central Committee, 28 Unit Chairs and numerous Young Republican, College Republican and Tea Party chairs publicly supporting Ed running for Governor in 2017

The Washington Post reported that in just one week of fundraising, Let’s Grow, Virginia! raised over $270,000.

That was obviously a very strong start, but the momentum since the Advance has only grown. Today we have some very exciting news!

We are honored to welcome the support of the majority of Republican members of Virginia’s General Assembly as conservative leaders across the Commonwealth continue rallying behind Ed to run for Governor in 2017!

In addition to these elected leaders, more than 100 grassroots leaders from across the Commonwealth have added their names to the list in the past month. Nine more members of the State Central Committee (for a total of 39), four more unit chairs (32) and former Congressman Frank Wolf are among those now also publicly supporting Ed running for Governor. The entire list can be found below.

In addition to the enthusiastic support from these conservative leaders, Let’s Grow, Virginia! has a long list of strongly committed financial supporters who helped us raise over $480,000 dollars in our first seven weeks!

It’s no wonder the National Journal recently listed Virginia one of the top three potential Republican pick-ups among governor races if Ed Gillespie is our nominee.

And we are just getting started.
