RICHMOND, Va. (WTVR) – Several reality stars from the same family are touring all over the Commonwealth in support of Republican gubernatorial candidate  Ken Cuccinelli.

The Duggar family, from TLC’s “19 Kids and Counting,” will begin their three-day bus tour through Virginia on Monday.  The family has stops planned in Lynchburg, Richmond, Virginia Beach, Fredericksburg and Woodbridge.

“We are excited to travel across Virginia and express our enthusiastic support for Ken Cuccinelli for governor and E.W. Jackson for lieutenant governor.  Both of these men are deeply concerned about the issues impacting the family and our broader culture.  Family Research Council Action and the Duggar Family are honored to join grassroots activists and voters across Virginia as we promote the message that this election is vitally important in protecting and defending our rights and freedoms. Virginians have an opportunity to send a message at the ballot box that will be heard across the entire country,” Josh Duggar, the eldest Duggar child, said in a statement.

The Duggars are scheduled to appear at the Virginia State Capitol in Richmond on Tuesday afternoon at 12:30.
