    Hampton Roads - OC reports

    When will VCDL PAC endorse Statewide candidates?

    12 days until Virginia elections and VCDL PAC has still not endorsed statewide candidates. Why is it taking so long for VCDL PAC to announce endorsements? It is a pity that endorsements come so late. Many, including those serving overseas in the military must vote absentee and the...
