I’ve posted about two potential Democratic candidates (State Sen. Jennifer Wexton and Fairfax County Board member Kathy Smith) to run against the abysmal Rep. Barbara Comstock (R-10th) next year. I’ve also heard several other names rumored. But now, we have an actual, announced Democratic candidate — Kimberly Adams; see email below.

Dear Friends and Family,
Many of you have said you expected this to happen someday. TODAY IS THE DAY. I am gathering support for a run in the 10th Congressional District here in Virginia.
I am running to represent the hard working people who make our homes here in the 10th District. I am a teacher and I always have been. It is time that someone like me defies all the odds and puts in the time to be our voice in Congress. Barbara Comstock is not serving her constituents well and she does not share my values. I believe that I can bring a strong voice of reason to Washington D.C. and be a powerful advocate for all those living in the 10th District.
Primary day will be in June of 2018 and Election day will be in November 2018. That may seem like a long way off – it is not.
I know that I can be successful in this race. I know that I can represent the interests here in the 10th. I also know that I will need your help to make this happen. Please click on the link below and make a commitment of your dollars. Know that the contribution will not be called-in until I officially file for the seat. This will happen on July 1. I am hoping to secure funds from as many people as possible to jump-start this campaign. (Federal contribution rules stipulate that an individual can give $2600 per race for a total of $5200 – so give early and give often!)
I appreciate all of your support and I will be in touch with each and every one of you soon. You can always email me suggestions for the campaign, tell me about issues that you would like to see highlighted, or share ideas that you have for this race.

Thank you for always standing by me in the past and for believing in me now.
Working to Represent Virginia’s 10th Congressional District
