January 12, 2021
Accomac, Virginia – Today, Senator Lynwood Lewis (SD-6) announced his endorsement of Andria McClellan for Lieutenant Governor.
“I’ve known and worked with Andria McClellan for years on a number of issues, from flood mitigation and protecting the Chesapeake Bay to regional transit in Hampton Roads. I know she has the right skills, experience and drive to deliver real results for the people of our Commonwealth. Our needs are not small. Deploying more access to affordable, reliable, high-speed internet and improving broadband infrastructure, securing capital for small businesses in the wake of a global pandemic, prioritizing a clean, safe environment, ensuring quality education for all and funding workforce training, and making healthcare more affordable and accessible for every Virginian are all critical policy goals moving forward. Achieving real progress won’t be easy, but Andria has shown over and over again that she doesn’t need a goal to be easy to reach it — she just needs it to be possible. With strong, driven leadership statewide in Virginia, it is possible. She’s a ‘roll up your sleeves and get it done’ person,” said Senator Lewis. “I’m proud to support my friend, neighbor and former competitor in her race to serve as our Commonwealth’s next Lieutenant Governor. She’s worked hard for Hampton Roads, and she will work hard for all Virginians.”
Senator Lynwood Lewis has served Virginia’s 6th Senate district, since January 2014. The 6th District encompasses the Eastern Shore and parts of the cities of Norfolk and Hampton. Previously, he served the families of the 100th House of Delegates district for a decade.
“I want to thank my friend and former competitor for his endorsement and faith in me,” said Andria McClellan. “Senator Lewis has been a result-driven leader in the Senate who has consistently delivered for Hampton Roads families while leading efforts on major statewide challenges, like flooding and protecting the Chesapeake Bay. I’m proud to have earned his support.”
