Lynchburg, VA - Today former Lynchburg-area State Senator and current Virginia 5th District Congressman Tom Garrett stepped forward to support Tim Griffin’s bid for Lynchburg Commonwealth’s Attorney.

Congressman Garrett served as the elected Commonwealth’s Attorney in Louisa County before being elected to serve Virginia’s 22nd Senatorial District in the Virginia General Assembly, which includes much of Lynchburg. In November of 2016, Garrett won a landslide election to represent Virginia’s 5th Congressional District in the U.S. House of Representatives. 

On Thursday, Garrett expressed his support of Griffin by saying:

“Over the years, I have watched Tim work hard to elect principled representatives at every level of government. The countless hours Tim spent helping my Congressional campaign in 2016 afforded me the opportunity to hear his vision for Lynchburg firsthand. With that being said, I have full confidence in his ability to represent the people well and uphold the laws and Constitutional principles of our great Commonwealth.”

Griffin is currently the only candidate to formally announce his intention to run. His website may be seen at
