RICHMOND, Va. — Tonight, the Northern Virginia Business Political Action Committee (NOVABIZPAC), the political action committee of the Northern Virginia Chamber of Commerce (Northern Virginia Chamber) announced that it has endorsed Attorney General Mark Herring for reelection. The Northern Virginia Chamber of Commerce is the largest chamber of commerce in Northern Virginia, representing more than 700 organizations with more than 500,000 employees.
In endorsing Attorney General Herring’s reelection, NOVABIZPAC said:
NOVABIZPAC trustees voted to once again endorse General Herring because of his experience serving Northern Virginia and the Commonwealth, and for his support for the Northern Virginia Chamber’s legislative agenda and priorities.
“General Herring has ably served the Commonwealth, just as he did serving Northern Virginia in the Senate and Loudoun County on the Board of Supervisors,” said McGeary. “He has a record of leadership on a host of key business issues important to the Northern Virginia Chamber, including his unwavering support for the landmark HB2313 transportation plan, and his commitment to modernize Virginia’s regulatory framework to prepare the Commonwealth for the emerging technologies that will lead private sector growth in the 21st century.”
Reacting to the endorsement, Attorney General Herring said:
“As Attorney General, I work every day to keep Virginians and their families safe, and make sure Virginia is the best place to live, learn, work, raise a family, and to start and grow a business. Living in Loudoun County, I have had a front row seat to Northern Virginia’s transformation into a global magnet for talent, technology, and investment. I’ve had the privilege to work on solutions to many issues of importance to Northern Virginia businesses and workers, like growing our technology sector and finding bipartisan solutions to solve our transportation challenges. Thank you to NOVABIZPAC and its members for their continued support, and I look forward to working together in my second term.”
