Don Blake endorses John Adams

Coming off our recent fundraising report where we shattered the fundraising record for an Attorney General candidate over the same period—and endorsements from Senator Siobhan Dunnavant and Rick Boyer—I have more exciting news to announce and I wanted you to hear it first!  Don Blake, the Chairman and President of Virginia Christian Alliance (for identification purposes only), has announced that he's joining Team Adams!

Don has been a leader in the Richmond community for decades, serving as the founding board chairman of the Henrico Youth League, a founding board member of the Henrico Police Athletic League, and a five year term on the Family Foundation of Virginia Board. With a passion for ministry, he was a founder of Urban Hope, an inner city ministry serving the Greater Richmond Area. Don has worked over the years with pastors across Virginia building relationships and traveling overseas for seven different mission trips.

The text of Don's endorsement is below:

I am supporting John Adams for Virginia’s next Attorney General.  I look at the Office of Attorney General from two prospectives.  I have been a business owner for 40+ years and as such I have witnessed the ever increasing burden of government regulation by local, state and federal governments.  Virginia needs a strong Attorney General willing to take on those unelected bureaucrats imposing their “progressive” agenda on the Virginia business community.

While some refer to the Attorney General as Virginia’s “Chief Law Enforcement Officer," I believe we need a principled litigator willing to fight courtroom battles to protect our Constitutional rights.

John Adams will be that man to take the battle to the courts.  His legal experience and background exceeds anyone having sought the Attorney General’s position in modern times.

I am also looking at John Adams from my prospective as the leader of a statewide Christian organization.  I feel confident that John has both the core values and the will to aggressively protect our religious liberties and defend our conservative values.

John Adams also has shown that he has the ability to raise the funds necessary to effectively take on Mark Herring next November.

I believe Virginia needs an experienced lawyer—not another politician—as our next Attorney General, and I wholeheartedly endorse John Adams for the position.


It is truly an honor to have a conservative leader like Don Blake on board. I will continue to hit the road in the coming months, speaking with conservatives across the Commonwealth and working hard to take back the White House in November and defeat Mark Herring in 2017!
