DENVER RIGGLEMAN – running for Virginia Governor / is a former Air Force intelligence officer and owner of a craft distillery outside Charlottesville.
He’s the 4th GOP contender to jump into the Virginia gubernatorial race
Denver Riggleman is an Air Force Veteran, former Air Force Intelligence Officer, former owner of Analyst Warehouse, a successful DOD contracting firm, and is currently the owner of Silverback Distillery in Nelson County Virginia. Riggleman is currently running for the Republican nomination for governor in Virginia.
Washington Post: The first-time candidate is positioning himself as an outsider businessman unhappy with taxes and government regulation that he says have stifled the two-year-old spirits business he runs with his wife. Riggleman said he takes inspiration from the unorthodox candidacies of Dave Brat (R-Va.), who ousted then-House Majority Leader Eric Cantor in 2014, and Donald Trump, because they ran without prior political experience and galvanized supporters outside typical political circles.
