House Democrats Support Shannon

Anita Kumar

Del. Stephen C. Shannon (D-Fairfax), the only announced Democratic candidate for the attorney general, receive support from the top two Democratic leaders in the House of Delegates.

House Minority Leader Ward L. Armstrong and Del. Kenneth R. Plum (D-Fairfax), chairman of the Democratic caucus, endorsed Shannon.

"I'm proud to support Steve because, when it comes to protecting children, Steve has been a leader since before his election to the House of Delegates," Armstrong said. "As a former prosecutor and as a dad, Steve knows what it takes to keep our kids safe."

Sen. John S. Edwards (D-Roanoke) is considering running, but has not made a decision.
