DELEGATE SAM RASOUL ENDORSES JOSH THRONEBURG FOR CD-5
Charlottesville – Josh Throneburg, Democratic nominee for Virginia’s Fifth District U.S. Representative, announced today that his campaign was endorsed by Delegate Sam Rasoul (HD-11).
Rasoul, who represents Roanoke and the surrounding region, said that his endorsement was based on Josh’s honesty and his commitment to rural organizing.
“Josh is a person of great integrity, and someone who really walks the walk,” said Rasoul. “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.”
“When I began this campaign someone suggested that as I move forward, I should identify a candidate and campaign that I admire and use that as inspiration,” said Josh. “I immediately blurted out, ‘Sam Rasoul!’. Sam is an extraordinary progressive voice who works hard for the people he represents every single day. He has a unique ability to connect with people, to be genuine in his leadership, and to champion their best interests in the state legislature. I’m deeply grateful for his service and leadership, and honored to have his endorsement!”
Josh resides in the City of Charlottesville with his wife, Minhee, and their daughters, Agnes and Lucy. He is an ordained minister and local small business owner.
