The Washington Post has endorsed Rob Krupicka in his bid to secure a seat in the state Senate representing Virginia’s 30th District.
Krupicka, currently a member of the Alexandria City Council, is running against Del. Adam Ebbin and Arlington School Board member Libby Garvey to replace the seat vacated by Sen. Patsy Ticer.
“Both Mr. Ebbin and Mr. Krupicka are well respected, substantive and effective and either one would make an excellent senator. We’d give Mr. Krupicka a slight edge, based on his private-sector experience and expertise in education,” the editorial said. “The third candidate, Arlington School Board member Libby T. Garvey, is less ready for prime time in Richmond.”
In an email newsletter to voters soliciting campaign donations, Krupicka said: “I’m honored to have their support, but it pales in comparison to the endorsement that I value most: yours.”
Voting for the Democratic primary is Aug 23. The winner of the Democratic primary will face Tim McGhee, a Republican businessman, in November.
