Governor 2017: Denver Riggleman Makes It Official


In an announcement Monday, Nelson county businessman Denver Riggleman made it official in a press release that he running for the Republican nomination for Governor.

Bearing Drift has published background and an interview by senior contributor Matt Colt Hall previously while Riggleman explored the prospect of pursuing public office. He had filed official paperwork on December 28, 2016.

Riggleman, who owns a distillery in Nelson County, plans the official campaign kickoff at that location on Saturday.

In his press release, Riggleman said:

“I am running to radically change business as usual in Virginia. The plain truth is that the system is wired for lobbyists and large donors and against small business and the people. I have explored every other avenue to fight for not just myself but for the people of Virginia. I believe someone needs to use blunt force trauma to break up the good ole boy system in Richmond that, as Ronald Reagan said, ‘takes from the needy to give to the greedy.’ ”
