The Ward 6 Democrats are fired up and ready to help flip both houses of the Virginia state legislature blue this fall.
Having realized that focused attention will be more effective than trying to campaign for all of the more than 100 Democratic candidates on the Virginia state ballot this fall, Ward 6 Dems Outreach Director Andria Thomas has also selected three outstanding candidates we're going to focus on:
- Dan Helmer, challenging incumbent Republican House Caucus chair Tim Hugo in HD-40 (Fairfax)
- Sheila Bynum-Coleman, challenging incumbent Republican Speaker of the House of Delegates Kirk Cox in HD-66 (Richmond)
- Wendy Gooditis, Democratic incumbent in HD-10 (Loudon), in a competitive race to secure her first re-election
All three are facing challenging but winnable races.
Come join us Tuesday, August 20, from 6:30-8:30 p.m. in the upstairs room at Mr. Henry's (601 Pennsylvania Avenue SE) to learn more about these great candidates, write some postcards to Virginia state voters, find out how you can contribute to an even bigger Virginia state blue wave than we experienced in 2017 this fall, and enjoy extended happy hour specials with your fellow Ward 6 Dems.
