ALEXANDRIA, Va. (AP) - Former Virginia lieutenant governor Don Beyer is picking up support from prominent national Democrats as he seeks a House seat in northern Virginia.

Beyer's campaign announced today that he's been endorsed by former U.S. Energy secretary and New Mexico governor Bill Richardson.

Beyer has also been endorsed by former presidential candidate Howard Dean.

Beyer is one of 11 Democrats seeking the seat being vacated by the retiring Jim Moran. The district includes Arlington, Alexandria and parts of Fairfax County and is heavily Democratic.

Beyer's last run for office was a failed bid for governor in 1997. He served as U.S. ambassador to Switzerland and Lichtenstein from 2009 through last year.
