2021 Democratic Nominee, VA HD-9
Having a multi-ethnic family shaped Josh’s perspective on issues like systematic racism, discrimination, and equality. He knows what marginalized communities endure on a daily basis, and he’s committed to actually showing up and engaging with those forgotten voices.
2020 Candidate, CD-5
Josh’s priorities focus on helping working families. As our next Congressman, Josh will create local good-paying green jobs that combat climate change, expand healthcare access through Medicare for All, and bring desperately needed infrastructure to our rural communities.
Charlottesville City Council
Josh is a person of integrity and compassion. His commitment to building a sustainable and equitable future for everyone is clear. So, too, is his work ethic. If elected, I know he’ll work his heart out for all of us.
Former Charlottesville Vice Mayor
As a daughter of a retired elementary school teacher, product of public schools, and parent to three students in Charlottesville City Schools, I share Josh’s commitment to supporting a strong public education system. Josh recognizes the importance of investing in our youngest of learners as well as providing a variety of options for students coming out of high school that best meet their needs while setting them up for the greatest success in the workplace. Josh is the passionate, committed, and collaborative leader we need to represent the 5th District on education and so much more.
2021 Democratic Nominee, VA HD-55
Josh is exactly the representative that Virginia’s 5th District needs: a compassionate, caring father, minister, and small business owner who grew up the son of a public school teacher in a small town. He shares so many experiences with the diverse constituency of the 5th. He will protect public education, our environment, access to healthcare, rural communities, and our future.
Candidate for HD-62 and 2021 Democratic Nominee for HD-58
Josh and I share a commitment to work hard and serve others. We also share the values of equity and compassion, brought from our rural roots and grown in the deep faith that drives our passions. Josh knows the community he seeks to represent because he is one of them. He will bring that leadership, knowledge, and commitment to service to work for better access to affordable, quality healthcare for all and work to help our rural communities thrive again with access to the services, resources, and opportunities we need.
Community Advocate and Past Vice Chair, Virginia Democratic Party Fifth Congressional Committee
I’m endorsing Josh Throneburg for Congress because I believe he is the right person at the right time to represent Virginia’s Fifth District.
Charlottesville Vice Mayor and four-term member, CPS School Board
I am honored to endorse Josh for the 5th District. He is a man of faith, a small business owner and my friend. Josh has the knowledge and passion to move this District and the Commonwealth forward. I am encouraging all my friends to support Josh. He will listen and make a difference in Washington.
Former Chair, Campbell County Democratic Committee
Rural problems require rural solutions. Josh has solutions that will bring the Fifth District into the 21st century by making sure our rural students receive a top-notch education, our families have access to healthcare without driving long distances, and bringing last-mile broadband so residents don’t have to leave their rural communities for big-city jobs.
Former Delegate, HD-28
I’m delighted to extend my support to a fellow man of the cloth, a faithful Democrat who centers the importance of environmental and racial justice. We need more people in Congress who are unafraid to tackle these critical systemic issues, and I know Josh has the courage and the wisdom to do just that.
Charlottesville City School Board Member
I’m drawn to Josh’s candidacy because he combines common-sense, progressive ideas and an ability to connect with a wide range of voters in the 5th District. People need to feel heard and respected before they can be persuaded. I believe Josh is the candidate who can deliver these voters.
ER Nurse & HD-55 Delegate Candidate
As an ER Nurse having been on the frontlines of the COVID pandemic for the last two years, I’ve seen firsthand what decades of undermining rural healthcare has done to our Central Virginia communities. And as a Christian, I’ve seen far too many politicians who claim to be fans of Jesus Christ, but refuse to follow his example in pursuing love and justice, and fighting for the most vulnerable among us. That’s why I’m endorsing Josh. As an ER Nurse, I know he’ll fight unapologetically in Washington to make sure people can access the care they need. And as a Christian, I know he’s not just a fan of Jesus Christ; he’s a Follower, willing to step up and lead in His example.
2018 CD-5 Candidate
I have been impressed with Josh’s positions on issues, which reflect thoughtful and profound concern for all people, and also his willingness to share them clearly and openly. He does not seek to craft a platform that strategically positions him as a candidate but rather one that will improve as many lives as he possibly can.
2019/21 Democratic Nominee, HD-25
I met Josh in 2021 when he helped knock doors for my House of Delegates campaign. It was his commitment to helping other candidates and his willingness to get out and talk to voters early that showed me what I needed to know about Josh. He is ready to go to DC to represent the people of the 5th CD and isn’t afraid of the hard work he knows it will take to get him there.
Josh is a person of great integrity, and someone who really walks the walk. He’s going to help the district thrive, but more than that, he’s going to make sure that nobody gets left behind. He wants our cities to grow, but he is just as committed to revitalizing our small towns and shoring up our family farms. And moreover, he’s someone who really listens and learns from the people he wants to represent: that’s important to me.
Virginians deserve leaders who bring us together, and that’s why we need Josh Throneburg in Congress. Josh knows that the challenges we face can only be tackled together, and he’s proud to serve every inch of this district. We’ll be proud to have him working for all of us in Washington.
2019 SD-11 Democratic Nominee
I’m happy to support Josh Throneburg. His focus on education, climate change, racial justice, and rural investment is important to the people of the 5th.

2021 HD-14 Democratic Nominee
I’m endorsing Josh Throneburg for Congress because I believe he is the right person at the right time to represent Virginia’s Fifth District, build a more inclusive coalition, and represent the interest of all Virginians in Washington.
Chair, Buckingham County Board of Supervisors
Coming from a family of farmers and small business owners, just like Josh, I know the importance of hard work, dedication to a cause, treating everyone right, and the willingness to step into the arena and fight for what is right. We need Josh Throneburg in Congress now more than ever to fight for rural Virginia and maintain our progressive values, which include compassion and common sense, conservation of our environment, supporting public education, expanding our business base, and fighting for all Virginians. He has my full endorsement.
The Fifth District desperately needs a representative who cares about justice, fairness and equal rights. I’m happy to endorse Josh Throneburg because I have seen his commitment to building a world where ALL Virginians can grow and thrive together. He is clear-eyed about our challenges: he knows that we need to take bold action to address climate change; he’s dedicated to fixing our broken health care system; and he’ll make sure working people have the support they need to do their jobs and raise their family.
