Look, the Falls Church News-Press is further left than I am, but I’ll tell you one thing: I’d take their endorsement, and respect their opinion, over the corporate hack Kaplan Post any day of the week! And, of course, Democrats should always do the exact opposite of what right-wing Republican newspapers, like the Abysmal Sun-Gazette and Real Estate Rag, recommend we do (they also endorsed Barbara Favola, which really says it all).
With that, here’s the very liberal Falls Church News-Press’ endorsement of Jaime Areizaga-Soto for Senate from the 31st district.
For the 31st State Senate District, held for so many years by our own State Sen. Mary Margaret Whipple but no longer covering Falls Church, we endorse Jaime Areizaga-Soto, who has exhibited a passionate commitment to strengthen the party statewide bringing his background in the military, his Hispanic-American heritage, and his dedication to fighting for equal rights for all.
An excellent choice, for all the reasons cited. Go Jaime!
P.S. The News-Press also is endorsing Adam Ebbin for Senate in the 30th district, Theo Stamos for Commonwealth’s Attorney, and Alfonso Lopez for House of Delegates from the 49th district.
