Conservative leaders are rallying to Ben Cline and his campaign for Virginia’s 6th Congressional seat. Today, former House Speaker Vance Wilkins announced his public support.
“We need more principled, conservative fighters like Ben Cline in Washington standing up for us. I’m more than willing to support him and his campaign because he’ll stand up to the establishment in Washington that focuses more on getting reelected than serving the people that elected them,” said Wilkins. “Ben truly believes in the liberties enshrined in our constitution. He isn’t afraid to stand up for his beliefs and won’t shy away from the fights that matter in the preservation of our liberties.”
Cline has carved a conservative path in the House of Delegates, where he has consistently been re-elected with over 60% of the vote. His record has earned him the American Conservative Union’s (ACU) “Conservative Excellence Award” as well as top ratings from leading conservative groups like the VA Tea Party Patriot Federation, the Virginia Family Foundation and the NRA’s A+ rating.
“It’s an honor to receive Vance’s support. His endorsement as well as the outpouring of support from countless numbers of people across the district show we have real grassroots momentum,” added Ben Cline. “Washington has turned a deaf ear to the needs of our communities and families. Together we will send a message back to them that their neglect, incompetence and indifference will be coming to an end. I intended to deliver that message loud and clear to the powers that be in Washington when I get to Congress.”
