Members of Virginia Legislative Black Caucus endorse Hillary Clinton

hillary clintonToday, the majority of the members of Virginia’s Legislative Black Caucus endorsed Hillary Clinton ahead of the Commonwealth’s March 1 primary.

These leaders share Clinton’s commitment to reforming our criminal justice system that’s fundamentally broken, creating good paying jobs in all communities, and investing in education and health care to create opportunities across the Commonwealth.

“After carefully studying the candidates’ positions on issues that impact my constituents in Hampton, I’m proud to join many of my colleagues in the Legislative Black Caucus to announce my endorsement of Hillary Clinton for President,” said Senator Mamie Locke, chair of the Virginia Legislative Black Caucus. “Hillary will build on President Obama’s progress by fixing our broken criminal justice system, fighting systemic racism, and breaking down the barriers that are holding families back from economic success. She is also the only candidate who will protect and build on the Affordable Care Act, President Obama’s signature achievement which has helped 18 million people access health care.  Hillary has spent her whole career fighting for communities like ours and I know she’ll continue that fight as President.”
