Richmond, Va. (WTKR) – Virginia Congressman Scott Rigell (R – 2nd District) said he would vote for, but not endorse, Republican Lt. Governor Candidate E.W. Jackson. That’s according to a report from WTVR/CBS 6 in Richmond, Va.

Rigell said Jackson’s comments about gay people have caused him concern:

“His views with respect to the gay and lesbian community and homosexuality in general are not my own. I’m going to leave it at that,” Rigell said. “What he said and, indeed, how he said it. All of it.”
