Boucher Endorses Bowerbank
U.S. Rep. Rick Boucher (D) endorsed Jon Bowerbank, a wealthy businessman from Russell County, who is running for the Democratic nominee for lieutenant governor this year.
Boucher, who called Bowerbank a longtime friend, said that his record of job creation and experience in the energy sector make him the best candidate. Both men are from southwest Virginia, and Bowerbank has given Boucher campaign contributions over the years.
"As an entrepreneur in Russell County, Jon has demonstrated his ability to create high paying jobs,'' Boucher said. "He has two decades of experience meeting the challenges of the energy sector. Jon's commitment to economic development, finding energy solutions, and investing in our infrastructure will be an asset to Virginia when he is elected lieutenant governor."
"I am honored and humbled to have the support of such a distinguished member of Virginia's congressional delegation," Bowerbank said. "Congressman Boucher and I are both dedicated to producing innovative energy solutions and creating good jobs for Virginians, I look forward to being his partner from Richmond."
Bowerbank faces former Finance Secretary Jody Wagner for the Democratic nomination. Lt. Gov. Bill Bolling (R) will face lawyer Patrick Muldoon for the Republican nomination.
