Former Virginia House President Bill Howell is supporting State Senator Bryce Reeves in his bid for the seat of Virginia’s 10th Congressional District, Reeves announced Thursday.

“I watched him while he served in the Virginia Senate and I have no doubts that he has the integrity and the skills to be an exemplary member of the House of Representatives,” Howell said of Reeves in a press release issued by the Reeves campaign.

Reeves, R-Spotsylvania, announced last week that he is running for the proposed 10th Congressional District seat.

Previously, Reeves had campaigned to be the GOP candidate for the 7th Congressional District, but changed course when the special masters of the Virginia Supreme Court proposed a redistribution that could move the 7th to nearly 80 kilometers from the Home of US Representative Abigail Spanberger in Henrico County.

“I am very honored to have President Howell’s endorsement and to have him as a featured guest at my campaign launch event,” Reeves said Thursday. “He is a dear friend and was a mentor to me when I was first elected to the State Senate. I have learned so much from his leadership.
