Also noted from the press release:
A number of leaders within the the Republican and Democratic parties have also privately offered their words of encouragement and support, though they are unable to officially endorse due to rules set in place by their respective parties. I appreciate their support and respect their wishes to remain anonymous. It is our hope that on November 6th everyone will put partisan politics aside and vote based on the issues in this race and not the letter beside the candidate’s name.
Staples faces Republican Stan Wise on the November ballot. There is no Democrat running in this race.
