Press Release from the Governor-elect
RICHMOND- Virginia Governor-elect Bob McDonnell issued the following statement today regarding the nomination of Steve Hunt as the Republican candidate for the State Senate in the 37th District.
“I congratulate Steve Hunt on winning our Party’s nomination for State Senator for the 37th District. And I also applaud Marianne Horinko and Will Nance for campaigns well run. This November, Virginians gained a great Attorney General in Ken Cuccinelli. At the same time however, the citizens of the 37th District lost a highly effective representative on their behalf. With the nomination of Steve Hunt voters in the 37th District have the opportunity to continue to be represented by an individual of principle and integrity, who shares our commitment to creating the jobs we need, keeping taxes low, getting traffic moving again, and improving our public education system. I look forward to campaigning with Steve Hunt and ensuring that the citizens of the 37th District continue to send a dedicated and tireless Senator to Richmond to work for them.”
