Democratic lieutenant governor candidate Michael Signer will make a brief campaign stop at Fred’s Restaurant at 1 p.m. Tuesday for a lunch and meet-and-greet.

Signer, who was a deputy counselor to Mark Warner when Virginia’s junior U.S. senator was governor, will stump for the position for about an hour, campaign officials said.

Signer officially launched his campaign with a press conference at Courthouse Plaza in Arlington on Monday.

He plans to barnstorm every congressional district in in Virginia throughout the week.
