Today Denver Riggleman officially declared his candidacy for Governor of Virginia. Denver Riggleman, a former Air Force intelligence officer, and father of three, is the owner/operator of Silverback distillery in Afton Virginia. In his announcement Riggleman said:
“I am running to radically change business as usual in Virginia. The plain truth is that the system is wired for lobbyists and large donors and against small business and the people. I have explored every other avenue to fight for not just myself but for the people of Virginia. I believe someone needs to use blunt force trauma to break up the good ole boy system in Richmond that, as Ronald Reagan said, ‘takes from the needy to give to the greedy.’”
Riggleman joins an already crowded field of candidates for Governor: former candidate for US Senate Ed Gillespie, Prince William county chairman of the board Corey Stewart, and state Senator Frank Wagner.
Denver Riggleman’s campaign kickoff will be at his distillery on Saturday, January 14th:
