FAIRFAX, VA – Sean Perryman’s exploratory campaign for Lieutenant Governor received an important boost on Monday with the endorsement of Lindsey Davis Stover, a well-respected leader in Virginia and the Democratic Party. 

Davis Stover declared her support for Perryman, saying, “I am very pleased to support Sean Perryman for Lieutenant Governor and hope he jumps into the race as a declared candidate. Sean has a clear path to victory next year, and I’m looking forward to helping elect him as the youngest Lieutenant Governor in Virginia’s history. Sean’s strong leadership and commitment to social and economic justice will make him a transformational Lieutenant Governor with the ability to put people back into the center of politics.” 

“Sean has devoted his life and his volunteer career within the Democratic Party and at the NAACP to fight for equitable outcomes for people across the Commonwealth,” she added. “I also know that Sean’s upbringing in a working-class family gives him an important perspective when fighting for those who have been barely making ends meet, even before our current crisis.”

In response to the early endorsement, Perryman remarked, “Lindsey Davis Stover is widely recognized and appreciated for her high-level government service and her advocacy on behalf of progressive, good government. Her endorsement of our campaign at such an early stage demonstrates a recognition among influential advocates that we need fresh leadership in Richmond in order to build a 21st century Commonwealth where all Virginians can prosper.”

Davis Stover ran for the 2018 Democratic nomination to Virginia’s 10th Congressional District. She was a senior-level executive in the Obama Administration serving at The U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs and was Chief of Staff to former U.S. Rep. Chet Edwards (D-Tex.). She is a small business owner and resides in McLean with her family. 

Sean Perryman is President of the Fairfax County Chapter of the NAACP, a technology public policy advocate, attorney, and former congressional investigator. If elected he would become the youngest Lt. Governor in Virginia history.
