I wanted to bring to your attention two articles that came out over this past weekend that mentioned Shawn and his race for the State Senate. Both articles remind voters of the long record of our opponent, former Delegate Dick Black.
In the Washington Post, Anita Kumar writes:
“Dick Black, running in Loudoun and Prince William counties, was criticized by leaders of his own party in 2003, when as a delegate he sent fellow lawmakers pink plastic models of fetuses as they prepared to vote on an abortion bill.”
In the Richmond Times Dispatch, Columnist Jeff Shapiro writes:
“In Northern Virginia, specifically, the outer Beltway suburbs of Loudoun and Prince William counties, the GOP nominee is Dick Black, a former delegate best known for bashing gays, thundering about pornography and handing out life-size plastic likenesses of fetuses as testimony to his opposition to abortion.”
We don’t need that in the General Assembly again.
Voters in the 13th District want a leader like Shawn who will go to the Virginia Senate and make kitchen table issues like the economy, transportation and education their number one priority – not be a side show for issues that only distract from the real work that must be done.
We have 62 days until the election – can you help us with a contribution of $50 today to send Shawn to the Senate?
We have a lot of work to do to beat a career politician like Dick Black, but with your help we will be victorious in November.
Thanks for your support,
Shawn Mitchell for State Senate
P.S. We are having a super canvass this Saturday, can you volunteer to talk to voters about Shawn? You can contact our field director Kyle at kyle [at] shawnforsenator [dot] com
