Statewide Democratic Primary Endorsements: Easy Decision Edition

Incumbent Attorney General Mark Herring does not have any Democratic opponents, so there’s not a primary this June. He will be on the ballot in November and I encourage everyone to vote for him then.

But for the record, I voted for Herring in the 2013 primary, and if the nomination had been contested this year, I would have done so again. I’ve been pleased with his work fighting the opioid crisis and for immigrant rights, marriage equality, and the environment. Moreover, he has shown a willingness to stand up to the Trump Administration when they err, which happens with unfortunate regularity. We’ll need more of that in the coming years.

So yes, I endorse Mark Herring and look forward to electing him to another term.
