Secretary Abraham said: “As a small business owner, legislative staffer, and US Trade Ambassador, Al Johnson has the background to hit the ground running for the people of the 34th District. Equally as important is his passion and commitment to our community. He is a strong conservative who believes that less government, family and faith are foundational for our country to grow.”
Jane Abraham said, “Al and his family have been pillars of our community for over 20 years. Al understands our strengths, cares deeply about our children, and he will carry our ideals and values with him when he represents us in Richmond. Spencer and I are proud to endorse him.”
The Abrahams, residents of McLean, have long been committed to the Republican Party both nationally and locally.

Bush and the United States Trade Representative under President Ronald Reagan. He is currently a Senior Advisor for international law at Hogan Lovells in Washington, DC. Earlier this week, Johnson was also endorsed by former Republican National Committee Chairman Jim Nicholson.
