Y'all know that MS is running for office again (more coming soon to that site, btw), right? Well, the state party is eager to help if we can show a strong push here at the beginning.
Meaning we need to raise some money by March 31. Enough to show the party that this is a good bet.
The guy currently holding this seat is a Republican who sponsored a bill to mandate insurance coverage of autistic children...and then he let it die in committee. I took that pretty personally since I volunteer on both our County and State boards that oversee the intellectual disabilities services.
This district went for Obama and for Warner very heavily. Last time out the incumbent won by only 5% against a good guy with no prior elected experience. The party thinks MS's opponent is one of the most vulnerable incumbents in the state. And if we win just 6 more seats, the Democrats will have a majority!! Which is especially important this year with the redistricting coming next year -- helping us keep folks like Rep. Periello in his new seat! Also, if the Dems have a majority in the House, we can really bring Obama's policies home to the people of Virginia.
So, I'm asking you to help again, just like you did last time. We couldn't have done it without you.
Here's the link to my page on ActBlue. Please consider contributing if you can. And whether you contribute or not, please consider passing along the word to folks you think might be interested. I'll also be putting a permanent link over there on the right -->
Got questions about where MS stands on issues? Feel free to ask him!
Meanwhile, here's a link to my favorite MS as Supervisor moment.
