Former Wisconsin Gov, Scott Walker to headline Mark Obenshain campaign event

mark obenshainFormer Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker will be the special guest at the annual Oysters with Obenshain fundraising event for State Sen. Mark Obenshain.

The event will be held Thursday, April 11 at 5:30 pm at the Rockingham County Fairgrounds.

“I am delighted that Governor Walker will be coming to Virginia for this annual event. I was a proud to support him when he ran for President in 2016. Like me, he is a committed conservative and can speak to the importance of our Valley values of limited government, personal responsibility and individual liberty. What has always impressed me about Scott Walker is his ability to as a Republican build diverse coalitions and consistently win elections in a blue state without compromising his principles. We look forward to giving him a warm Virginia welcome to the Shenandoah Valley,” Obenshain said.

Just last week, Senator Obenshain was officially confirmed as the Republican nominee for the 26th District in the Senate of Virginia. The election will be held on Nov. 5.

“I look forward to this year’s campaign and hope that the voters in my district will allow me the honor of continuing to serve them for another four years in Richmond,” added Obenshain.

Senator Obenshain represents the twenty-sixth district in the Senate of Virginia. The district includes the City of Harrisonburg and the counties of Warren, Shenandoah, Page, Rappahannock and Rockingham (part). He serves as Chairman of the Senate Courts of Justice Committee and Chairman of the Virginia State Crime Commission.
