The Hampton Roads BizPAC has endorsed the following candidates for statewide office and the House of Delegates based on their support of Virginia’s Right to Work law. Virginia needs elected leaders who recognize how important protecting this law is and that's why the HRBizPAC has voted to support these candidates.
Glenn Youngkin for Governor, Winsome Sears for Lt. Governor, Jason Miyares for Attorney General. House of Delegates candidates are incumbents Delegate Emily Brewer, District 64, Delegate Jay Leftwich, District 78, Delegate Barry Knight, District 81, Delegate Glenn Davis, District 84, Delegate Robert Bloxom, District 100, Delegate Amanda Batten, District 96, and Delegate Martha Mugler, District 91. In addition to these incumbents the HRBizPAC also endorsed challengers Tanya Gould running for District 21 and Anne Ferrell Tata running for District 82.
“The Chamber is unapologetically pro-business,” said Bryan Stephens, President and CEO of the Hampton Roads Chamber. “One of the key elements to our region’s economic success is Virginia’s Right to Work Law. These candidates have pledged to uphold the Right to Work Law and for that reason we have chosen to endorse them this year. CNBC has ranked Virginia the #1 state for business and Virginia's Right-to-Work law is among the top reasons why.”
Right to work laws give workers a choice of whether or not to join a union. States without these laws require employees to pay union dues and fees as part of their employment. Members of the business community believe that workers shouldn’t be required to join a union.
