Foster Endorsed by Va Beach Mayor

Anita Kumar

David M. Foster, former chairman of the Arlington School Board, was endorsed by the mayor of the state's largest city, Virginia Beach's Will Sessoms, for the Republican nomination of attorney general.

"As mayor of Virginia Beach, I know that Dave Foster will be the attorney general we need to cut red tape, bring jobs to Virginia and help get the economy moving again," Sessoms said.

Foster faces John Brownlee, the former top prosecutor for Virginia's western district, and state Sen. Ken Cuccinelli II (R-Fairfax) at a Republican convention in May. Only one Democrat, Del. Stephen C. Shannon (D-Fairfax), has announced his intention to run.

"I'm elated that Will Sessoms is backing my candidacy," Foster said. "His endorsement is a significant breakthrough and sends a clear signal to Republicans dedicated to strengthening our party and achieving a solid victory for the entire GOP ticket next November."
