Supports: Robert F. McDonnell
Party Identification: Republican
2005 Vote: Jerry W. Kilgore
As the mother of an Army ROTC cadet, I understand what it means for Robert F. McDonnell to have graduated from the University of Notre Dame with an Army ROTC scholarship, not to mention 21 years of service to our country in the Army: service, sacrifice, discipline, dedication, perseverance and courage.
In other words, character.
The fact that he encouraged his daughter to do the same speaks volumes about his true feelings about working women.
To submit your own endorsement, write to firstname.lastname@example.org with “My Endorsement” in the subject line. Include your party identification, if any, as well as how you voted in Virginia’s last governor’s race. Finally, please include a day and evening phone number (not for publication) and a note disclosing any connection you have to Sen. R. Creigh Deeds or Robert F. McDonnell, their campaigns or the Democratic or Republican parties.
