Coalition Keeps Devolites Davis Endorsement

The Virginia Coalition of Police and Deputy Sheriffs will stand by its endorsement of state Sen. Jeannemarie Devolites Davis (R), coalition President Josh David said yesterday.

The coalition had considered rescinding the endorsement after Devolites Davis's opponent, Democrat J. Chapman Petersen, complained last week about a campaign mailer that published his home address and family members' names.

David said Devolites Davis has a strong voting record on behalf of law enforcement, so the coalition will not change its position.
