As the news from Washington about the corruption of the Trump administration gets worse and worse, it is important to remember that the country will be watching the Virginia elections on November 5. Only a few states have elections this year and Virginia is seen as a bellwether for 2020. The Virginia election will be read as a referendum on Trump and a huge Democratic win will energize progressives around the country, but our local candidates still need help to get enough money for mailers, find canvassers and phone bank callers. Dig deep; double down. America is watching.
