Democrat, Republican endorsed"Eric is right there fighting for the working ..." Get the impression that ol' Cooter doesn't know the first thing about this attorney he's endorsing (who "fights" in the following areas of law: "Personal Injury; Wills; Probate; Trusts and Estates; Insurance; Real Estate; General Practice")?

An area sheriff candidate and a House of Delegates candidate picked up endorsements over the weekend.
Eric Ferguson, a Democrat running for the 9th District House of Delegates seat, received an endorsement from former U.S. Rep. Ben "Cooter" Jones, who starred in the popular 1980s television series "Dukes of Hazzard."
Jones, who played Cooter Davenport in the "Dukes of Hazzard" and was elected to the House of Representatives from Georgia in the 1990s, endorsed Ferguson during a fundraiser.
"For too long we've had 'Boss Hogg'-style politics, and we need Eric to put a stop to it," Jones said. "Whether it's health care, transportation, education or taxes, Eric is right there fighting for the working men and women of Virginia."
Ferguson is running against Republican candidate Charles Poindexter and independent candidate Jerry Boothe, in the race to replace Del. Allen Dudley, R-Rocky Mount. (link)
Cooter endorses Eric. Give it the weight and treat it with the dignity it deserves.
