Stewart Announces Military Coalition Endorsements


Woodbridge, VA -  Republican gubernatorial candidate Corey Stewart today announced receiving the endorsement of a coalition of seventy military veterans and retirees. 

Colonel (Ret.) Mora-Figueroa announced his support saying the following: "I am supporting Corey Stewart for governor because I think his strong conservative values and views will help protect and uphold our cherished constitutional rights and Federal Laws, strengthen the state of our State, and help improve services and support for our brave veterans. Because Corey is not shackled to special interests or the GOP establishment, he will be able to better serve and be held accountable by the constituents of Virginia."

A strong supporter of Corey, Colonel (Ret.) Mora-Figueroa, received his Officer commission through the Air Force Reserve Officer Training Corps in 1980, retiring in January 2015 after serving over 28 years of combined operational duties in Active Duty, the US Air Force Reserves and the Air National Guard.

“Our Veterans and Active military leaders are the backbone of our Country and Commonwealth. Our Commonwealth is home to 800,000 military personnel and veterans. My campaign staff is also made up of several veterans - from my Campaign Manager to Field Directors”, said Corey. “I understand the sacrifice of those who would willingly give up their lives for us. My Grandfather served in WWI and another close relative died in the service of our Country at Pearl Harbor. Personally, I would like to express my deep gratitude to all those, both military members and families for their sacrifice in the protection and the maintaining of our Country. As you have served and as you continue to serve, I will serve you as Governor of our Commonwealth and will never leave you behind.”

Mark Chapin, a retired Colonel in the US Air Force, is also a vocal supporter of Corey, “As a military retiree, I'm very proud of Corey Stewart's rock-solid conservative values and his willingness to stand up for the rule of law - something long ignored by Democrats and the liberal media.”, said Chapin. “As a taxpayer, I'm impressed with Corey's willingness to cut waste and to say "NO" to the special interests. Virginians don't need another establishment politician...we need Corey's strong leadership in the Governor's mansion.”
