PRESS RELEASE: SENATOR CREIGH DEEDS ENDORSESCANDIDATE WILLIAM QUARLES
Creigh Deeds, state-senator and former Democratic gubernatorial candidate, has announced his endorsement of House of Delegates candidate William Quarles.
“I enthusiastically endorse William Quarles because he has what it takes to represent the people of the 65th District,” Deeds said. “William is a principled Democrat who isn’t afraid to work with Republicans in order to do the people’s work, and I’m confident that he’ll bring both common sense and compromise to the House of Delegates.”
Deeds has been a member of the State Senate since 2001. Prior to that, he served in the House of Delegates for a decade. He sought and won the Democratic nomination for governor in 2009.
Quarles was excited about Deeds’ support.
“Each time his district and his state called, Sen. Deeds has answered,” Quarles said. “His more than twenty-year career as a dedicated elected official can attest to that. I am grateful for his kind words and his wholehearted endorsement.”
