Republican Senator Bill Stanley Endorses Tim Griffin in Lynchburg Commonwealth's Attorney’s Race

Lynchburg, VA – Today, Republican Senator Bill Stanley endorsed Assistant Commonwealth’s Attorney, Tim Griffin, for Lynchburg Commonwealth’s Attorney.

Senator Stanley has served honorably in the Virginia Senate since 2012. Bill grew up as the son of a naval aviator and currently serves his community in Bedford and Salem as an attorney. Over the years, Senator Stanley has led the charge in Richmond to provide better grant opportunities for Southside Virginia, school choice for low income families and dual enrollment for high school students to attend community colleges, among several other initiatives. He continues to serve the Southside region in the General Assembly and was asked to seek the Republican nomination for Virginia Attorney General in 2016. 

On Thursday, Senator Stanley released the following statement:

“I have seen Tim’s desire for justice and his dedication to put away violent criminals in the courtroom. His message of going after and sending a message to gangs in his hometown of Lynchburg is more appropriate than ever before. For this reason, Lynchburg needs Tim Griffin as its next Commonwealth’s Attorney and as a Republican Senator, I endorse him.”

Griffin is seeking the Republican nomination for Lynchburg Commonwealth’s Attorney.  He has also been endorsed by Congressman Tom Garrett, former Congressman Virgil Goode, Virginia Delegate Ben Cline, Bedford Sheriff Mike Brown and former Lynchburg City Councilman H. Cary.
