Del. Scott Lingamfelter said, “I am honored to endorse my friend Paul Jost to be the Republican nominee from the 1st Congressional

District of Virginia. With Paul in Congress, we will not only have a man with superb business experience, we will also have a person committed to lower taxes, more freedom, and greater opportunity.”
