Aneesh Chopra, Democratic candidate for Virginia Lt. Governor, is proud to announce that he has received the endorsement of former Rep. Tom Perriello.

About the endorsement, Perriello said:

"Today, Virginia faces a choice — whether to be defined by our promising future or the divisions of our past. I'm endorsing Aneesh Chopra for Lieutenant Governor because he understands that politics is about coming together to tackle our most difficult problems and win the race for tomorrow's jobs, education, and technology. He has lived his professional life at the cutting edge of innovation and economic growth, and will bring great energy and vision to the tasking of creating a stronger Commonwealth for future generations."
Chopra, who served as Virginia's Secretary of Technology under Governor Kaine, and as U.S. Chief Technology Officer under President Obama, is excited to have Perriello's support:
“Tom Perriello has spent his career dedicated to the principles of equality and fairness. I am honored and humbled to receive his endorsement. Tom believes, like I do, that politics must be about coming together to find ways to make our government work better for all. I look forward to working with Tom, and all Virginians, to move the Commonwealth forward.”
Tom Perriello is the President and C.E.O. of the Center for American Progress Action Fund. From 2009 until 2011, Perriello represented Virginia’s 5th Congressional District in the U.S. House of Representatives.

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
