Statement from Tom Hicks

"After thoughtful consideration I have decided to withdraw from the race for the Democratic nomination for the U.S. House of Representatives seat in Virginia’s 1st congressional district. I make this decision because it has become increasingly clear that my personal and family commitments, including my full-time responsibilities as an engineering consultant, require my full attention and would not allow me the time necessary to conduct a proper, winning congressional campaign.

I want to sincerely thank my family and the many volunteers and supporters that provided me with their time, energy, encouragement, ideas, and donations without which I would not have made it this far.

Furthermore, 100% refunds will be provided to those donors that contributed to my campaign.

I still believe that in 2018, a Blue Wave will sweep across Virginia and our nation, replacing out-of-touch Republican lawmakers with Democrats who support mainstream progressive ideas that improve the lives of working families, the disadvantaged, the elderly, veterans, and future generations.

I plan to stay engaged in the political process and find other avenues to express my beliefs and ideas."
