    I got back a little while ago from the kickoff of Don Beyer’s general election campaign. According to a press release, Beyer’s campaign is “taking a page from Jules Verne’s “Around the World in 80 Days,” but instead calling his sprint to the finish line “Around the 8th in 80 Days.” Other than Don Beyer, speakers included Iraq War veteran and Democratic activist Terron Sims, a member of the Beyer Advisory Group on veterans’ issues; Del. Charniele Herring; State Senator Barbara Favola; Megan Beyer; and Animal Welfare League of Arlington spokeswoman Keelee Wrenn (who announced a Sept. 3 “Doggy Happy Hour” at Hotel Monaco in Alexandria with Don Beyer to benefit the Humane Society shelter). One more quote from the press release, then to the videos (starting with the Beyer theme song – the “Blue Cup Song”): “‘From Rip Sullivan to John Foust to Mark Warner, this is a campaign of teamwork,’ said Beyer, as he urged his supporters to join Sullivan’s GOTV canvass ahead of Tuesday’s special election for state delegate.”
