2019 Endorsements




State Elected Officials

U.S. Senator Mark Warner; former Governor (2002-2006)

"I first worked with Delegate Alfonso Lopez back in 2002 on an early version of the DREAM Act. Alfonso illustrated to me his unwavering dedication to doing what is right for his community. Today, I see that same dedication as he fights for healthcare access, renewable energy expansion, immigration reform, and affordable housing. I endorse Alfonso because he has fought hard for his district and I am eager to continue working with him to lift all Virginian’s up and leave no one behind.”


U.S. Senator Tim Kaine; former Governor (2006-2010)

"Alfonso is a trusted friend and adviser. I've seen firsthand his tireless work on behalf of Virginia families and how deeply he cares about helping those in need. With his strong legislative and public policy experience, the people of the 49th District are lucky to have Alfonso as their voice in Richmond."


Governor Terry McAuliffe (2014-2018)

"You could not have a better fighter. There's no one more out front on the issues of education, affordable housing, renewable energy—he's on it. He's fought for the Dreamers; he fights for everybody. We've got to have him back in Richmond."
