Senator Mike Lee Endorses Virginia Delegate Nick Freitas for United States Senate
ARLINGTON, VA- Virginia Delegate Nick Freitas has been endorsed by United States Senator Mike Lee (R-UT) in his bid to replace Tim Kaine in the U.S. Senate.
Sen. Lee released the following statement:
When I met Nick, we had a long conversation about the need to restore the federal government to its proper size as outlined in the Constitution.
After researching his voting record in Virginia’s General Assembly, it’s clear Nick Freitas will join me and Senators Rand Paul and Ted Cruz in championing our conservative principles.
Nick Freitas is the only candidate running for U.S. Senate in Virginia with a record of promoting the pro-liberty principles of our founding fathers.
This is the second endorsement for Del. Freitas from a sitting U.S. senator. Earlier this year, Senator Rand Paul (R-KY) announced his support.
During his endorsement, Sen. Paul said, “
As a Green Beret and Delegate in Virginia’s state legislature, Nick Freitas has more than proven to be a man of integrity and is dedicated to preserving liberty and the conservative values you and I hold dear.”
Nick Freitas is continuing to attract the attention and endorsements of some of the most liberty minded conservatives in the Commonwealth and the nation as his campaign continues to gain traction.
