FORMER CAMPBELL COUNTY COMMITTEE CHAIR SAMANTHA LITCHFORD ENDORSES JOSH THRONEBURG FOR CD-5
CHARLOTTESVILLE– Josh Throneburg, Democratic candidate for Virginia’s Fifth District U.S. Representative, announced today that his campaign was endorsed by Samantha Litchford, former chair of the Campbell County Democratic Committee.
Litchford cited Josh’s commitment to the revitalization of rural communities, small towns, and family farms as reasons for her endorsement.
“Rural problems require rural solutions,” Litchford said. “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.”
“Few people outrank Samantha Litchford when it comes to passion for rural politics and the Fifth District,” said Josh. “She has an unmatched understanding of how to connect with voters in rural areas. Moreover, Sam grew up here. To her, constituents aren’t just voters – they’re her neighbors. I can’t wait to knock some rural doors with her this summer when we take on Bob Good.”
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.
Headshots for Josh and Samantha Litchford are available. Interviews can be coordinated by contacting Kelsey Cowger, Communications Director.
