Kilgore served as attorney general from 2002-2005, and ran unsuccessfully for governor as the Republican Party nominee in 2005, losing that election to Democrat Tim Kaine, who is now a U.S. senator.
Kilgore is also a former chairman of the Republican Attorneys General Association and served prior to his term as attorney general as Virginia Secretary of Public Safety and as a member of Gov. George Allen’s cabinet.
“I am eager to do what it takes to help Gov. Walker succeed in Virginia in March and beyond,” said Kilgore. “His message of fighting and winning for the hard-working taxpayers is one I believe Virginians – and all Americans – are yearning to hear, and his record of accomplishment following through on that message is second to none. Gov. Scott Walker is the leader our country needs, and I am honored to support his efforts in this campaign.”
