Delegate Bagby Rolls Out First Round of Endorsers, Including Mayor Levar Stoney, Mayor Samuel Parham, Delegate Delores McQuinn, Delegate Luke Torian and More

Richmond, VA – Today, Delegate Lamont Bagby officially announced his campaign for the U.S. House of Representatives to fill the seat vacated by the late A. Donald McEachin. Delegate Bagby hosted a kickoff press conference, joined by supporters, endorsers, and community leaders.

Delegate Bagby has spent nearly a decade in the House of Delegates as a champion for Virginia’s most vulnerable communities, ensuring everyone has equitable access to a world class education, a roof over their head, and economic mobility. Since elected, Delegate Bagby has become an emergent leader, undertaking an ambitious agenda to break cycles of poverty by providing quality healthcare, inclusionary affordable housing, environmental, and justice reforms, and equity in education.

“I am proud to stand here before you with my friends and neighbors at my side to announce my candidacy for the Fourth Congressional District of Virginia,” said Delegate Lamont Bagby. “No one will ever be able to replace Donald McEachin, but I promised him, his wife Colette, and his children that his legacy would live on forever. As Delegate and Chairman of the Virginia Legislative Black Caucus, I have fought to get guns off the streets, make housing more affordable, expand access to voting, and run predatory lenders out of Virginia. There is more work to do to take on radical Republicans and to represent this District – and I hope the constituents of Virginia’s Fourth Congressional District will trust in me to do so.”

Delegate Bagby is proud to have the endorsement of:

  • The Honorable Levar Stoney, Mayor of Richmond
  • The Honorable Samuel Parham, Mayor of Petersburg
  • The Honorable Delores McQuinn, Virginia House of Delegates
  • The Honorable Luke Torian, Virginia House of Delegates
