Michael Signer Looking at LG Race

Tim Craig

Michael Signer, an attorney who served as deputy counselor to Mark R. Warner (D) when he was governor, is considering entering the race for the Democratic nomination for lietenant governor.

In an email to campaign professionals, Signer said he is searching for a campaign manager.

"As you may have heard by now, I'm planning on entering the primary for Lieutenant Governor of Virginia this June," the email states. "I'm looking for a campaign manager who could run an aggressive, resourceful, insurgent statewide campaign -- ideally someone with strong experience in caucuses and field organizing and creatively using the internet on a campaign."

According to his bio, Signer is a veteran of John Edwards' 2004 campaign for the Democratic nomination. Signer had also been associate communications director of Wesley Clark's 2004 presidential campaign. He later served as Clark's Virginia State Director. Signer is also a former aide to Sen. R. Creigh Deeds when he was a member of the House of Delegates.

I think Mike is a great choice for Lt. Governor and am thrilled he is running. With his public policy prowess, long history in Virginia politics and as a Northern Virginia local, he is coming with a lot to bring to the debate.

Moreover, it seems as though the race just opened-up over the holidays with a few more candidates getting in, and I think Signer is going to be the one to watch.
