Morton Blackwell of Arlington, who heads the Leadership Institute (which works to bring conservatives into the political process) and serves as a member of the Republican National Committee from Virginia, has endorsed the gubernatorial bid of Pete Snyder.

Snyder’s “record as a conservative movement builder and innovator is clear. He is building a winning coalition around his principled conservative agenda,” Blackwell said in a statement released by the Snyder campaign.

“Pete is our best choice to reverse the failed policies of the Northam administration and is the strongest conservative candidate for governor I have seen in Virginia’s recent history,” Blackwell said. “Republicans must unite behind Pete to defeat Terry McAuliffe in November.”

Blackwell has been a fixture in conservative Republican circles for 60 years. In 1964, he was the youngest delegate to the Republican National Convention that chose Barry Goldwater at the party’s nominee.
