Shak Hill scores several endorsements in his bid for the Republican nomination to unseat Sen. Mark Warner.
On May 22, Shak Hill Received the support of Ambassador Alan Keyes. The former presidential candidate’s support came in the form of an email touting Hill’s pledge to impeach President Obama. The pledge was solicited by the Conservative Majority PAC, which Keyes serves as Chairman.
The decorated former Air Force combat pilot recently signed a candidate pledge that calls for initiating the president’s impeachment for unconstitutional usurpations and betrayals of his oath of office, summarized in a comprehensive case against the president.
The Keyes endorsement came on the heels of additional Tea Party support for Hill, including endorsements by former 5th District Congressional candidate Jim McKelvey, and stamps of approval from the Lynchburg Area Tea Party and the Southwest Virginia Tea Party.
Last week, Hill also received the endorsement of Virginia conservative icon Del. Bob Marshall. Marshall’s support came in response to Hill’s support of Marshall’s efforts to impeach Attorney General Mark Herring for dereliction of his constitutional duties. Marshall wrote the following:
I hope the delegates at the upcoming Republican US Senate nominating convention in Roanoke will also thank you with their support as they come to understand and appreciate your willingness and commitment to defend their rights which flow from the “Laws of Nature and Nature’s God.”
Hill’s campaign also issued releases touting the support of two national security-related political action committees, the National Defense PAC and the Special Operations Speaks PAC.
This string of endorsements comes as Hill prepares to take on former Republican Party Chairman Ed Gillespie next weekend at the party’s state convention in Roanoke. In addition to the National Right to Life Committee’s endorsement we reported here, Gillespie also enjoys the support of 65 members of the Virginia General Assembly, dozens of local Republican chairmen, and a majority of the members of the Republican Party of Virginia’s State Central Committee.
