Rep. Rick Boucher Endorsed Jon Bowerbank for LG

Jon Bowerbank announced earlier today that he has received the endorsement of Congressman Rick Boucher. This is a big endorsement because Boucher is a popular Member of Congress who ads even more legitimacy to Bowerbank's grassroots campaign. The following is part of what Rep. Boucher had to say about why he's supporting Jon's candidacy.
"Jon Bowerbank is a long-time friend of mine, and I am pleased to endorse his candidacy for Lieutenant Governor of Virginia. As an entrepreneur in Russell County, Jon has demonstrated his ability to create high paying jobs. He has two decades of experience meeting the challenges of the energy sector. Jon's commitment to economic development, finding energy solutions, and investing in our infrastructure will be an asset to Virginia when he is elected Lieutenant Governor.

Jon Bowerbank is a candidate who will appeal to a broad range of Virginians in our urban and rural areas. His experience and background make him the ideal Democratic candidate for Lieutenant Governor in 2009."
What I really liked about this endorsement is that the announcement focused on the need to produce "innovative energy solutions." Jon highlighted how he has he owns an energy services company and Rep. Boucher is "a member of the Energy and Commerce Committee and a Senior Member of the Energy and Air Quality Subcommittee." These facts highlight how they both have similar priorities and suggest that Boucher's endorsement is worth paying attention to.
