Virginia Lieutenant Governor Justin Fairfax kicked-off his campaign for governor Saturday morning at the Old Court House in Fairfax, Va.
Fairfax had announced last Thursday that he is formally entering the governor's race. Virginians will elect a new governor in 2021.
Fairfax was elected Lieutenant Governor of Virginia in 2017 and is only the second African-American to be elected to statewide office in Virginia.
Before running for office, Fairfax served as an Assistant United States Attorney for the Eastern District of Virginia in Alexandria.
