VOTEVETS ENDORSES NORTHAM FOR GOVERNOR

RICHMOND, VA – VoteVets.org PAC, with over 450,000 supporters, is today announcing its endorsement of Ralph Northam for Governor of Virginia.

 

“Ralph Northam served this nation with honor and integrity, in the Army.  He could have gone on to just live a private life, made money, and retired, and no one would have questioned it, but he didn’t – he chose to keep serving Virginia, in the Senate of Virginia, as the Commonwealth’s Lieutenant Governor, and as a volunteer for children.  His smarts, dedication, and character cannot be questioned,” said Jon Soltz, Iraq War Veteran, and Chairman of VoteVets.org.  “He will be a Governor that the commonwealth can be proud of.”

 

After attending the Virginia Military Institute, Ralph Northam served in the U.S Army as a Doctor during Desert Storm treating wounded soldiers. He rose to the rank of Major. Upon his return from treating soldiers injured in Desert Storm, Dr. Northam began practicing pediatric neurology at Children’s Hospital of the King’s Daughters in Norfolk. Dr. Northam also serves as Assistant Professor of Neurology at Eastern Virginia Medical School and has seventeen years of volunteer services as Medical Director for the Edmarc Hospice for Children in Portsmouth.
