FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
January 14, 2021
Norfolk, Virginia – Today, former Congressman Glenn Nye (VA-02) announced his endorsement of Norfolk Councilmember Andria McClellan for Lieutenant Governor.
“Andria is an extraordinary local government leader who represents an area with the world’s largest naval base and one of the greatest concentrations of military service members, veterans, and their families. She listens and understands the needs of those serving our country and those who support them. She is adept at building coalitions that leverage federal, state and local resources to benefit her community,” said Congressman Nye. “We need her experience, not only in local government but also as an entrepreneur, a mom and a non-profit leader, as our next Lieutenant Governor.”
Congressman Glenn Nye was elected to serve the families of Virginia’s 2nd Congressional District in 2008. Before his service in Congress, he was a U.S. Foreign Service Officer. Currently, he serves as the president and CEO of the Center for the Study of the Presidency and Congress.
“I want to thank Congressman Nye for his endorsement and support. In Congress, he proved himself to be a fierce advocate for service members, their families and our veterans through his leadership on both the Armed Services and Veterans Affairs Committees,” said Norfolk Councilmember Andria McClellan. “In 2009, he championed to passage a bill providing benefits for small businesses hiring vets returning from Iraq and Afghanistan. Throughout his career of service, he has worked hard for Virginia families – as will I – and I’m proud to have his endorsement.”
Former Congressman Glenn Nye is the second Congressional endorsement for Andria McClellan. In December, Congresswoman Elaine Luria also announced her endorsement of Andria. To date, these are the only Congressional endorsements in the 2021 campaign for Lieutenant Governor.
