Del. Bob Marshall is gaining numerous endorsements from elected officials and others in his race to succeed veteran Congressman Frank Wolf.

Let’s start with Senator Dick Black (All these are from Bob’s emails to me and ten million other supporters!):

He adds that I “…saved Virginia’s families hundreds of millions in taxes by overturning HB 3202 in the Virginia Supreme Court.

Next, Senator Black graciously notes: “No one in the General Assembly knows parliamentary rules better than Bob Marshall.” “He can tie the other side into knots when he needs to. Debating Bob is like debating the Encyclopedia Britannica.”

Finally, he refers to the malaise that many people have been feeling recently about their elected officials: “People complain about the status quo in Washington, but they elect the same establishment candidates time and again.  If you want the same-ole, same-ole, then Bob Marshall isn’t your guy.  However, if you actually want to change the direction of Washington, Bob Marshall is your candidate.  Bob Marshall has my wholehearted support.

And Delegate (and medical doctor) Mark Berg:

In his endorsement, Delegate Berg states, “Bob Marshall is truly a statesman for our time in the noble tradition of our Founding Fathers, a stalwart supporter of Constitutional principles, individual liberty, and limited government. One of Bob Marshall’s top priorities if elected to Congress would be to defund and dismantle Obamacare.” Delegate Berg adds that “This is not just a hopeful wish of Bob’s. It is something he will fight for tooth and nail. I have seen this passion and persistence in Bob Marshall in the hundreds of bills he has sponsored or pushed since he has been in the House of Delegates.

Keith Fimian, candidate for Congress:

We don’t need more Republicans in Congress who will vote with John Boehner over the interests of the people they serve in order to secure a leadership position.   

We need principled, conservative Republicans in Congress who have led on issues and not just voted, and who have proven over the long term their commitment to smaller government, sound fiscal and economic policies and traditional values, the most fundamental of which is respect for human life.

That is why I am proud to endorse Bob Marshall for Congress in Virginia’s 10th Congressional District.

Loudoun County School Board member Bill Fox:

Although we may not agree on every point of policy, I feel that you are the only legitimate candidate in the race who takes seriously the conservative values of liberty and limited government.

Specifically, I strongly support your education platform regarding encouraging and fostering school choice, and your recognition that the Federal Department of Education provides no value added to children and educators, and accordingly should be eliminated or phased out.

And Prince William County BOCS Chairman Corey Stewart:

In backing me, Chairman Stewart notes, “There is only one candidate [Bob Marshall] who has distinguished himself in over two decades in Richmond as a principled and fierce defender of our Virginia and U.S. Constitutions. There is only one candidate who has already successfully represented roughly one third of the people of the Tenth District as their State Delegate in Richmond. And… there is only one candidate who springs to mind as an intellectual warrior who’ll never shrink under the slings and arrows of outrageous Washington liberals.

Chairman Stewart says that his decision to endorse me for Congress was “an easy one” and then goes on to say in his statement that “…there’s no doubt in my mind that the people of the Tenth District can count on…[Marshall]… as an unflinching advocate of the core values that define us as Republicans: limited government, fiscal discipline, social conservatism and cultural integrity.”

I am impressed with the strength of these endorsements.  I am sure that my addition to these endorsements will not prove worthy of a email to supporters but I say this about Bob Marshall:

Del. Marshall is principled, indefatigable in his determination to bring his issues to Richmond (and will do the same in Congress) and force the opposition to state their positions in recorded votes and positions.  Bob also fights for taxpayers and will be in independent voice for the people of the Tenth District in Congress.  Del. Marshall knows the precedents of Congress from his prior work as a staffer for a Democratic Representative.  Go and take the time to vote in the firehouse primary and elect a solid conservative to Washington:  Del. Bob Marshall!

I promised Bob I’d call some voters for him so that is my disclaimer here!  Support Bob Marshall for Congress!

Nothing is more conservative than a republican wanting to get their majority back. And nothing is more liberal than a republican WITH a majority.
