Bowerbank Endorsed By Party Leaders

Anita Kumar

Jon Bowerbank, a wealthy businessman from Russell County, announced endorsements today from nine Democratic party chairmen in his bid for lieutenant governor.

"Jon Bowerbank's experience as the founder of his own business makes him the ideal candidate for lieutenant governor in these challenging economic times," said said EJ Scott, Manassas/Manassas Park City chairman.

Bowerbank, owner of an energy services company that employs hundreds of people, serves as a member of the Russell County Board of Supervisors.

"It is a great pleasure to see so many Democratic leaders coming out to support this campaign,'' Bowerbank said. "It is clear that the Virginia Democrats are behind our cause and ready to take back the lieutenant governor's office this November."

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.

The Democratic Party chairmen endorsing Bowerbank are those from Galax, Scott County, Culpepper County, Norton City, Wythe County, Tazewell County Dickenson County, Gainesville Magisterial District and Manassas/Manassas Park City.
