Gov. Northam Endorses VA-01 Nominee Qasim Rashid
STAFFORD, VA – Today Governor Ralph Northam endorsed Qasim Rashid’s campaign for Congress in Virginia’s First Congressional District.
“I greatly appreciate Governor Northam’s endorsement,” said Rashid. “His leadership during the COVID-19 pandemic has been invaluable, and our commonwealth is lucky to have him. I look forward to bringing that same level of leadership to Washington so that our communities can receive the federal support that they so desperately need to defeat this pandemic and rescue our economy. “
Rashid will compete in the general election against independent Shawn Ponterio and incumbent Republican Congressman Rob Wittman on November 3.
