See below for “Freedom Virginia”‘s 2023 candidate endorsements. My biggest disagreement is in SD37, where I’ve endorsed Saddam Salim over Sen. Chap Petersen. Also, I’ve endorsed Stella Pekarsky over Sen. George Barker in SD36. And I’m neutral n several other primaries, such as Sen. Jeremy McPike vs. Del. Elizabeth Guzman, Sen. Dave Marsden vs. Heidi Drauschak, Jennifer Carroll Foy vs. Hala Ayala, etc.
