As a reminder, we are supporting the campaigns of three candidates in the Virginia state elections this fall, as we work to flip both houses of the Virginia state legislature blue.
- Sheila Bynum-Coleman (HD-66), challenging incumbent Speaker of the House of Delegates Republican Kirk Cox
- Dan Helmer (HD-40), challenging incumbent House of Delegates majority caucus chairman Republican Tim Hugo
- Wendy Gooditis (HD-10), Democratic incumbent seeking her first re-election
All three are on the record in support of DC Statehood. They are also united in their support of issues that matter most to Ward 6 Democratic voters: sensible gun safety protections, protecting women's reproductive rights, support for the ERA, and ending extreme partisan gerrymandering.
We held our second postcard writing party of this election season Tuesday, Sept. 3, at Solid State Books on H Street NE.
Nine people (including one person who just happened to be in the bookstore and stopped to ask us what we were doing) wrote postcards in support of the candidacy of Dan Helmer. Dan is a Rhodes scholar and combat veteran, and is running on a platform that includes support for women's health care and reproductive rights and support for strong environmental protections.
