Former Texas Gov. Rick Perry this week endorsed Virginia Sen. Bryce Reeves, R-Spotsylvania, in his bid for the 7th Congressional District seat held by Rep. Abigail Spanberger.

“Bryce Reeves is a strong, proven conservative leader, and Virginia needs him in Congress right now,” Perry said in a statement from the Reeves campaign.

“As an Army Ranger, police detective, coach and business owner, he understands the values we both share from our days in the Corps of Cadets at Texas A&M University—“Duty, Honor, Country,” said Perry, who served as secretary of energy in the Trump administration. “I’m proud to enthusiastically endorse my friend Bryce, so he can bring his experience and leadership as whip in the Virginia Senate to Washington, D.C. Virginia can count on him fighting for conservative values.”

Reeves, in a statement, said the 47th governor of Texas was a conservative leader in the country, successfully governing with fiscal responsibility and enacting pro-Second Amendment policies. He was a fierce defender of life, Reeves said.

“Under President Trump’s administration, Secretary Perry pushed energy independent policies, which kept our energy costs low and put America first,” the senator said. “President Biden swiftly reversed these policies and our gas prices have exploded, hurting the American people’s pocket-book.”

The state senator, who represents Culpeper County as part of his district, is seeking the Republican nomination to unseat the two-term Spanberger, D-Henrico, in the 2022 midterm elections.
