Rockbridge – Delegate Ben Cline (R-24) announced today that the Virginia Conservative Victory Project, which he founded in 2013 and which has helped elect several conservatives to state and local office, is endorsing three candidates for Delegate in the upcoming Republican primary to be held on June 13: Graven Craig in District 56, Susan Stimpson in District 28, and Eddie Whitlock in District 72.
“These three candidates are solid conservatives,” said Del. Cline. “The goal of the Virginia Conservative Victory Project is to help make the House more conservative by electing more like-minded Delegates. Virginia voters will further that goal by nominating Graven Craig, Susan Stimpson, and Eddie Whitlock on June 13, and then by electing them as Delegates in November. I am happy to give my full support to their primary campaigns.”
The Republican nomination for these seats will be decided by a primary on Tuesday June 13th. Voters can go to their usual voting location from 6am to 7pm. The 56th District is comprised of all of Louisa County, and parts of Goochland, Henrico, and Spotsylvania counties. The 28th District is comprised of parts of Stafford County and the City Fredericksburg. The 72nd District is comprised of parts of Henrico County.
First elected to the House of Delegates in 2002, Ben Cline has been a strong advocate of conservative policies in Virginia. He assumed the co-Chairmanship of the Conservative Caucus in 2008 and has aggressively fought for policies that emphasize family, faith, and freedom, and he has led the fight against higher taxes and heavy-handed government bureaucracy. To help elect more conservatives in the House who embrace these policies, Cline launched the Virginia Conservative Victory Project in 2013.
