Kirk Cox Endorses Mike Cherry for Delegate in District 66

Cox commits to retaking House of Delegates; Cherry supports Cox for Governor

COLONIAL HEIGHTS — Former House of Delegates Speaker, retired teacher, and candidate for Governor Kirk Cox endorsed Mike Cherry on Wednesday in the race for Virginia’s 66th House of Delegates seat.

“I am proud to support Mike in his campaign to represent Colonial Heights and Chesterfield in the House of Delegates,” Cox said. “Mike has a strong record of conservative leadership on the Colonial Heights City Council, one that I am confident he will continue in Richmond. For those of us who advocate for effective and responsible government, Mike is our candidate.”

Cox also spoke to Cherry’s responsiveness as an elected representative. “One of the highlights of serving this district in the House are the many people that call it home. Many of my legislative proposals have come from constituents across the district. I know Mike will work diligently to listen to our constituents’ concerns and fight on their behalf.”

Cherry stated, “I thank Kirk for his steadfast leadership in our community and in the House of Delegates on important issues such as life and the Second Amendment. As I put my name forward to represent the 66th District, I am grateful to have his support and endorsement. We look to build on his winning campaign in 2019 that sought to engage new voters and expand the electorate.”

Cherry additionally endorsed Cox’s bid for Governor. “Kirk is the right person to be our next Governor. His knowledge of state government is unmatched. Following eight disastrous years of the McAuliffe and Northam administrations, Virginia needs someone who can hit the ground running to take this state in the right direction. I know Kirk will be that leader.”

Kirk concluded, “In addition to electing a new governor in November, Virginians will have the opportunity to flip the House of Delegates. I am fully committed to working with our nominees across the state to ensure a Republican majority in 2022.”
