Adam Cook of Fredericksburg announced today he is challenging Rob Wittman in VA-01.
Cook is a 34-year-old attorney who is an Air Force Reserve officer just returned from a tour of duty in Afghanistan. Adam was employed in the Social Security Administration Office of General Counsel. He has left that position to campaign full-time.
I had the opportunity to hear Adam speak and answer questions — he is VERY IMPRESSIVE. He has an in-depth understanding of issues and is focused on economic issues.
Adam is a solidly progressive Democrat who understands the pressures on the middle-class, retirees, and people who work for a living. He is the son of a minister who openly states that he stands with “the least of these.”
He does not plan to get wrapped up in the useless “God, guns, and gays” crap that passes for political discussion.
He has hired a finance director and campaign director as well as a couple of advisers; all of these folks have experience in both Virginia and national campaigns.
