Upon receiving the endorsement, Justin Fairfax made this statement:

“I am proud to have the endorsement of the Virginia Police Benevolent Association. Virginia PBA represents thousands of law enforcement officers in the Commonwealth of Virginia, and I am grateful for their support.  As a former Assistant U.S. Attorney in the Eastern District of Virginia, I keenly understand the important, challenging and, at times, complex mission of our law enforcement professionals. As someone who has family members who are members of our law enforcement community, I know that our police are often on the front lines of many of the toughest challenges our communities face.  Whether state, county or municipal, I will work hard as Lt. Governor to support our law enforcement community. Having the endorsement of the Virginia Police Benevolent Association means a great deal to me.”
