We have another opportunity to help pick up a seat in the General Assembly in a special election. Democrats in Fairfax County were instrumental in the victories of Senator Dave Marsden and Delegate Eileen Filler-Corn (who won by just 37 votes). This time, we’re taking a road trip!
Kai Degner is the Mayor of Harrisonburg and a Young Democrat. He’s running for an open Delegate seat in the 26th District. The election is Tuesday, June 15. We have a real opportunity here because:
–Kai is a great candidate who really knows the issues in his district
–Kai has out-raised his Republican opponent
–Democratic volunteers from across the state are fired up! “You can feel it on the ground,” says Fairfax County Democratic Committee Executive Director Mike Burns.
–Kai is running against both a Republican and a Tea Party candidate, so he has a better chance to win a plurality of votes in a three-way race.
