Supporters for Sen.
Mark Herring (33), the Democratic nominee running for Virginia Attorney
General, will speak on behalf of the candidate in Leesburg
today to highlight differences between him and his opponent, Sen.
Mark Obenshain (R-26).
The two squared off earlier this year during a debate sponsored by the Loudoun County Chamber of Commerce.
During today’s event, slated for 10 a.m., Leesburg Mayor Kristen Umstattd, Purcellville Mayor Bob Lazaro and former Virginia Sec. of Transportation Pierce Homer will speak. The meeting is set to take place near the Sycolin Flyover project now underway in the town.
Herring voted in support of legislation that will mean about $6 billion more for transportation, while Obenshain voted against it.
[Correction: The original story stated Herring would attend. He did not.]
