Ed Gillespie Personally Seeks Endorsement of Known Anti-Muslim Hate Group Leader

Richmond, Virginia–It came to light on Friday morning that Republican candidate for Governor, Ed Gillespie, sought and received the endorsement of Scott Ryan Presler, a known anti-Muslim activist.

“Ed Gillespie should be denouncing hate groups, not asking for their endorsement,” Anna Scholl, Executive Director of Progress Virginia said. “We need a Governor who will work to improve the lives of all Virginians, not just those who share the Governor’s race or religious views.”

Presler is employed by ACT for America, a known anti-Muslim hate group and is actively involved in organizing anti-Muslim protests across the country that will take place this weekend. He is also the Vice Chairman of the Virginia Beach Young Republicans.
