2013 ENDORSEMENTS

Great Seal of Virgnia

Governor: No endorsement

Lt. Governor: Ralph Northam

Attorney General: Mark Obenshain

Posted: Sunday, October 20, 2013 12:00 am | Updated: 5:07 pm, Tue Jul 22, 2014.

Mark Obenshain is the clear choice to be the next attorney general of Virginia. He has impressed us with his professional experience, his moderate temperament and his calm demeanor. It doesn’t hurt that he has run one of the more positive statewide campaigns in recent memory. But it is his commitment to limited, effective government — overseen by skilled but modest leaders — that played the decisive role in securing our enthusiastic endorsement.

In recent years, state attorneys general have grown increasingly influential and, not coincidentally, more visible. We have applauded efforts by AGs, including Virginia’s, when they fight to protect the rights of citizens or impede overreach from Washington. But we also are concerned when state AGs, including our own, overstep their authority or pursue cases of tangential interest to their constituents.
