Conservatives Endorse Dick Black
“No one in Virginia has greater passion and courage to fight for conservative Republican values.”

WASHINGTON , DC —Prominent conservatives are supporting Dick Black:

Delegate Bob Marshall, Prince William County
"No one in Virginia has greater passion and courage to fight for conservative Republican values. Dick Black played a prominent role in enacting some the most visible pro-life and pro-family legislation in Virginia history. Dick Black leads on life, curbing taxes, and in restoring the moral fabric of the Commonwealth. He is my friend and would be a distinguished member of Congress."

Richard Viguerie, American Targeted Advertising
“We will not restore the Reagan legacy without “boat rockers’-strong leaders with strength of character to do what’s right when it’s the hardest thing to do. Dick Black doesn’t just promise-he gets results through bold, assertive action. The U.S. Congress needs men like Dick Black-men who hold their ground when others falter.”

Larry Pratt, Gun Owners of America (endorsement is in my personal capacity and not on behalf of the organization)
"Dick Black has been the Virginia legislature's foremost defender of gun rights. He is a man of unusual determination who gets dramatic results by taking aggressive action."

Paul Weyrich, President, Free Congress Foundation (in his personal capacity only)
"There is no more consistently conservative voice in Virginia than that of Dick Black. He has a keen understanding of the difficult challenges confronting our nation today. He will provide fresh new strength to the Republican cause in Congress."

Major General Hugh Overholt (USA Ret.), former Judge Advocate General of the Army
"There was no finer JAG officer than Colonel Black. A battle-tested Marine, he instilled good order and discipline throughout the U.S. Army. In the field and at the Pentagon, he made major contributions to national defense. He would be an extraordinary asset to the House Armed Services Committee in Congress."

Maj. Gen. Gene Deegan (USMC Ret.) former Commanding General, Marine Corps Recruit Depot, Paris Island, South Carolina
"As a lieutenant, Dick Black always moved into the thick of battle. A natural leader, he took personal risks defending his company and his nation. He helped lead and reorganize Fox Company, 1st Marine Regiment after it suffered heavy battlefield casualties. He was fearless in battle, and his combat experience would enhance the House Armed Services Committee's deliberations enormously."
