Brownlee's New List of Endorsement

Today seems to officially be AG Candidates Endorsement Announcement Day.  Earlier today Cuccinelli announced a couple more key endorsements, and then this afternoon Brownlee announced that "Almost every Republican leader in Virginia's Fightin' Ninth Congressional District has joined Team Brownlee and endorsed John to be our next Attorney General."  

The following is a list of Brownlee's supporters form the 9th Congressional District copied straight from the e-mail he sent out.

ALLEGHANY / COVINGTON: Loren Newman, Unit Chair
BLAND COUNTY: Jack Morgan, Unit Chair; Rebecca Johnson, Clerk of Court; Sheriff Jerry Thompson 
BRISTOL CITY: Joyce Kistner, Unit Chair

After reading the e-mail, certain snide comments like the fact that it takes more than one congressional district to win, Ken has a significant number of endorsements from all over the state, not just his home town, endorsements from South West Virginia are nice, but there aren't many delegate votes there, and atleast Ken could get the chair of his own local committee to endorse him.  While these thoughts popped into my head, I won't say them, or maybe Brownlee will release a nother list of endorsements that begins to rival Ken's endorsement list.
