Moran's Endorsement List Grows
Democratic gubernatorial candidate Brian Moran continues to receive endorsements almost daily from elected officials and local Democratic groups across the state.
Moran, a former delegate, and state Sen. Creigh Deeds, to a lesser extent, clearly have the support of many of local Democratic officials in Virginia. Newcomer Terry McAuliffe, former chairman of the Democratic National Committee has announced a limited number of endorsements but says he approaches them in a different way -- trying to solicit support from local activists.
The June 9 election may test how powerful and effective local endorsement is in a Democratic primary.
In the past week, Moran was endorsed by the Korean American Democrats of Virginia, Democratic leaders in Appomattox County, including County Committee Chairman Frank Poynter and First Vice-Chair Ora McCoy, and Stafford Democratic Committee Chairman Marc Broklawski.
"Brian Moran has been a consistent figure within the Virginia community and has always had an open-door attitude with Korean Americans and other minority communities," said Michael Kimm, the group's president. "Specifically, his plans to expand opportunities for small, women- and minority-owned businesses, and increasing their opportunity to partner with the commonwealth are very critical to a lot of Korean American-owned small businesses."
