Senator Dick Black has strongly endorsed Delegate Bob Marshall in the 10th Congressional District race.Â “Bob Marshall is the most courageous legislator I know.Â He is a tireless campaigner who represented one-third of the congressional district at one time or another.Â Bob has won twelve contested races in Loudoun and Prince William Counties.”Â Black said.
Marshall spent six years on Capitol Hill.Â As a researcher and Clerk in the U.S. Congress, he devised the legislation that prohibits federal funding of abortions – the now famous Hyde Amendment.Â In the General Assembly, Marshall passed the Marriage Amendment, the Ban on Partial Birth Abortion and a multitude of other laws dealing with everything from roads and schools to laws affecting privacy and healthcare.Â He’s an outdoors sportsman and a staunch gun-rights supporter.”Â Black said.Â “He is Virginia’s most effective anti-tax warrior.Â Marshall saved Virginia’s families hundreds of millions in taxes by overturning HB 3202 in the Virginia Supreme Court.”
Â “No one in the General Assembly knows parliamentary rules better than Bob Marshall,” Black said.Â “He can tie the other side into knots when he needs to .Â Debating Bob is like debating the Encyclopedia Britannica.”
Â “People complain about the status quo in Washington, but they elect the same establishment candidates time and again.Â If you want the same-ole, same-ole, then Bob Marshall isn’t your guy.Â However, if you actually want to change the direction of Washington, Bob Marshall is your candidate.Â Bob Marshall has my wholehearted support.”
