    Corey Stewart endorsed George Allen for Virginia's Senate seat, News4's Julie Carey reported.

    Months ago, the Prince William County chairman considered jumping into the race himself, firing some pointed criticism at the former governor.

    “He was a very good governor of Virginia,” Stewart told News4 in January. “But I think when he got to the U.S. Senate, I think that Washington changed him more than he changed Washington.”

    Since then, Stewart and Allen seem to have found a way to get along.  They appeared together in Prince William County for the formal announcement Tuesday morning.
