State Sen. Jill Vogel announced today that she is endorsing Retired Lieutenant Colonel Daniel Gade to become Virginia’s next U.S. Senator, and will help him beat Mark Warner in November.

“After 25 years of honorable service to his country in uniform, Daniel has continued to make it his life mission to serve the American public. He is a veteran, family man, and true conservative,” said state Sen. Jill Vogel. “Virginia needs a fighter in November and Daniel can get the job done. I have no doubt that future U.S. Senator Daniel Gade will always put the interests of Virginians ahead of politics.”

Sen. Vogel’s and Williams’ support adds to the momentum Gade has gotten from conservative leaders across the Commonwealth and nation:

Congressman Dan Crenshaw (TX-02)
Congresswoman Elise Stefanik (NY-21)
The Honorable Scott Rigell
The Honorable Randy Forbes
Bishop E.W. Jackson, Former Candidate for Lieutenant Governor
Delegate Wendell Walker
Former State Senator Bill Carrico
Mayor Rick West, City of Chesapeake
Republican National Committeeman Morton Blackwell
Brigadier General Don Bolduc, Candidate for U.S. Senate (R-NH)

During more than 25 years of military service, he was awarded the Legion of Merit, Bronze Star, and two Purple Hearts. Daniel graduated from West Point in 1997.
