Bowerbank Hires Staff
Jon Bowerbank, a wealthy businessman from Russell County, hired campaign manager Jon Paul Lupo and national pollster Geoff Garin for his campaign for the Democratic nomination for lieutenant governor next year.
Lupo worked on U.S. Sen. Jim Webb's campaign in 2006 and as the deputy campaign manager for U.S Sen. Tim Johnson's re-election campaign in South Dakota in 2008.
Garin has worked on several successful Virginia political campaigns, including Mark R. Warner 2001 gubernatorial campaign and 2008 Senate campaign. Other clients include former lieutenant governor Don Beyer and U.S. senators Hillary Clinton of New York, Dick Durbin of Illinois, Dianne Feinstein of California and Russ Feingold of Wisconsin.
"I am committed to running a top-notch campaign and with the addition of Jon Paul and Geoff I am confident we can do just that," Bowerbank said. "Jon Paul was an integral part of Senator Webb's upset victory in 2006 and Geoff Garin has a long history of electing
Democrats around the country and particularly in the Commonwealth."
Bowerbank, faces former finance secretary Jody Wanger for the Democratic nomination for lieutenant governor. State Democratic Party Chairman C. Richard Cranwell declined last week to say whether he will run. Lt. Gov. Bill Bolling (R) faces attorney Patrick Muldoon, who has unsuccesfully run for office several times, for the Republican nomination.
