Kathy Hayden, Virginia's former Republican National Committeewoman, recently announced that she's supporting John Adams for the Republican nomination for Attorney General in 2017. She joins a growing list of conservatives from across Virginia who have signed up to support the campaign over the past few weeks. Kathy had this to say about her support for John:
"Having worked in the Attorney General's office for almost 12 years—serving under Mark Earley, Jerry Kilgore, Bob McDonnell and Ken Cuccinelli—I know what it takes to make an outstanding Attorney General. I am confident that John Adams has the credentials, experience, and character to be one of Virginia's best Attorneys General. John is a committed conservative who will fight to protect our constitutional rights, enforce the rule of law, and stand up for our values. I am pleased to offer my endorsement of his campaign and I encourage all Virginians to take a look at his amazing resume and consider supporting this outstanding statesman."
Kathy has been a leader in the conservative movement and the Virginia Republican Party for over 30 years. She has been active in many conservative organizations such as Americans for Prosperity, the Susan B. Anthony List, VSHL, Christian Coalition, and many others. As one of the original founders of the Family Foundation, and a recipient of their Citizen of the Year award, Kathy has fought to protect religious liberty and stand up for traditional values.
Kathy was elected to serve on the Republican State Central Committee from 1992-2016, most recently serving as Virginia's Republican National Committeewoman on the Republican National Committee.
John Adams responded to the endorsement, stating, "Over the years, Kathy Hayden has been a steadfast defender of conservative ideas and principles. Her leadership on the Republican National Committee ensured that Virginia Republicans had a strong voice, and I am honored to receive her endorsement. I look forward to continuing my travels across the Commonwealth, meeting with grassroots conservatives and growing our coalition."
