Senators Rand Paul and Mike Lee Endorse Nick Freitas

Sen. Paul and Sen. Lee continue the wave of early support behind Nick’s campaign


Culpeper, VA – Today, Nick Freitas announced the endorsements of U.S. Senators Rand Paul (R-KY) and Mike Lee (R-UT). Two days after Nick Freitas entered the race, the Senators are throwing their weight behind Nick as he seeks to retake Virginia’s 7th District.

Nick Freitas had the following to say about today’s endorsements:

“Senator Rand Paul and Senator Mike Lee are two leaders that conservatives across the country trust because they fight for what they believe in – ensuring all Americans have the freedom to achieve the American Dream. I’m honored to have their full support as we fight to retake the 7th District.”

Today’s endorsements come on the heels of endorsements from major conservative groups, Club for Growth and FreedomWorks, and endorsements from statewide conservative leaders in Virginia including Congressman Ben Cline, Senator Bryce Reeves, Delegates Michael Webert and Brenda Pogge, and conservative leader and businessman Pete Snyder.

Despite being the last candidate to enter the race just this week, Freitas’ early endorsements are the first received by any Republican in the 7th District primary field from an elected official or from a conservative group.
