We’re excited to announce that former Democratic Congressional Nominee Wayne Powell has endorsed William’s run for the Virginia House of Delegates!
“I am proud to endorse William Quarles.” Powell said. “This district and this state need someone like him. There hasn’t been a Democratic challenger in the 65th for ten years, and I’m glad William is that Democrat. From women’s healthcare to education, he’s on the right side of the issues.”
He’ll stand up for the citizens,” Powell continued, “and stand against the radical social agenda that so many representatives have embraced. William has said that Richmond is broken, and I couldn’t agree more. So now it’s time to elect William Quarles and get it fixed.”
I’m sure all of Blue Virginia’s readers will remember Powell’s spirited, nationally-recognized campaign against Rep. Eric Cantor in 2012. Powell not only drew Cantor into his first debate in years, but earned a higher percentage of votes than any other previous Democratic challenger.
“We’re excited to have Mr. Powell’s endorsement.” William said. “His campaign last year should serve as an inspiration for any Democrat running in Virginia. We’re honored to have his support.”
