FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:

Governor McAuliffe Endorses Delegate Mark Levine for Re-Election
Virginia Governor is Levine’s 37th endorsement by a state or local elected official.

Richmond, VA — Today, Governor Terry McAuliffe endorsed Democratic Candidate Mark Levine for re-election to his 45th District House of Delegates seat, just days after 36 other state and local elected leaders – including the leadership of the House Democratic Caucus – did so as well.

“Mark is a passionate and able advocate for the progressive causes we’ve fought for together and has proven time and time again that he can put aside partisan politics to work with Republicans to get things done for the people of the 45th district,” said Governor McAuliffe. “I’ve loved working with Mark and I’m proud to endorse him for re-election.”

“I truly value the Governor’s confidence in me. I have enjoyed working with him as well on issues affecting not just the 45th, but all over the Commonwealth,” said Delegate Levine. “I also appreciate the House Democratic Leadership encouraging me to ask tough questions of Republican bill patrons on the House Floor and to speak out on national issues, like Donald Trump’s ban on refugees. And I particularly cherish the support I’ve received from local leaders in Alexandria, Arlington, and Fairfax.

“But most of all, I look forward to continuing to share my record with my bosses – the constituents who elected me – and to ask them again for their vote this June 13th.”

Levine meets monthly with his constituents at Los Tios Restaurant in Del Ray. The next “Mark’s Monthly Meetup” will be Sunday, February 26 at 2 pm and is open to the public.

  • I appreciate your support, Lowell, as well as that of Governor McAuliffe, my colleagues in the General Assembly (including the Democratic Leadership), and the local officials from Alexandria, Arlington, and Fairfax.

    I appreciate your faith in me, and I’m looking forward to getting out on the campaign trail in March and discussing what we’ve been doing for the past year.

    I’ve been too busy doing the work to share it widely, and there’s so much my team has done which makes me proud. Now back to work. I have two more weeks in Richmond…

    • Keep working hard fighting for progressive values and I’ll keep supporting you! 🙂

    If McAuliffe supports him, I have my reservations about him. Would not want an endorsement from the carpetbagger.
