Gerry Connolly Endorses Mark Keam for Delegate

Thursday, May 28, 2009

Earlier today, I wrote about a backlash prompted by Roy Baldwin's attacks against Mark Keam in the 35th House of Delegates district race. Well, here is first part of the backlash:
U.S. Rep. Gerald E. Connolly (D-Va.) has endorsed Mark L. Keam in the four-man race for the Democratic nomination in the House of Delegates' 35th District.


"Mark Keam is a standout," Connolly said in a statement tonight. "He has the experience, energy and character to be an effective leader in the House of Delegates. He will fight for Fairfax and Vienna in Richmond, helping us get our fair share of transportation and education funding. I fully endorse his election."
I've heard that part of what prompted Connolly's endorsement was his anger at Baldwin's attacks against Keam. Also, I fully expect more endorsements of Keam coming soon.
