July Meetup Recap

Presentation from NARAL Pro-Choice America and Virginia before the DC4D VA endorsement vote.

Last night, despite the challenge of many DC4D members being out of town on vacation, we voted unanimously to endorse a slate of candidates in the 2017 Virginia elections. There were 27 votes in favor of endorsing out of a total of 28 ballots cast (one ballot was spoiled). A special thanks to Kendrick JacksonChris McGraw and Yuri Nemetz for serving as Election Inspectors, and for Travis Ballie (NARAL), Kara Mailman (NARAL-Virginia, Paul Murphy (Virginia Coordinated Campaign) and Zach Weinstein (National Working Families) for contributing to the discussion.

We endorsed the following candidates:

Statewide offices
Ralph Northam (D) for Governor
Justin Fairfax (D) for Lieutenant Governor
Mark Herring (D) for Attorney General (Incumbent)

Candidates for House of Delegates (in order of District)
Jennifer Carroll Foy (D), 2nd District
Wendy Gooditis (D), 10th District
Danica Roem (D), 13th District

Kathy Tran (D), 42nd District
Lee Carter (D), 50th District
