Glenn Nye Wins Pilot Endorsement

Tim Craig

Democrat Glenn Nye, who is challenging U.S. Rep. Thelma Drake (R-Va.), announced tonight that the Virginian Pilot has endorsed him.

In the editorial, The Pilot said Nye has the "bipartisan instincts" and the "experience in the world" to serve the 2nd District, which includes the Virginia Beach area.

Two years ago, The Pilot endorsed Drake in her race against Democratic candidate Phil Kellam. The endorsement was widely credited with helping Drake win reelection in what otherwise was a very big year for Democratic candidates.

But Nye, a 33-year-old career diplomat, still faces an uphill climb in defeating Drake this year. The National Republican Congressional Campaign committee is airing a hard-hitting ad that questions Nye's experience.
