  • From the Karrie Delaney for Delegate campaign:

    Jim LeMunyon Remains Silent on Trump’s Defense of White Supremacists

    CHANTILLY, Va. — Karrie Delaney for Delegate today released the following statement calling on Jim LeMunyon to unequivocally denounce President Trump’s defense of white supremacists, Neo-Nazis, and the Ku Klux Klan.

    “Jim LeMunyon continues to display a lack of leadership in his refusal to denounce Donald Trump’s disgusting defense of white supremacists, Neo-Nazis, and the Ku Klux Klan,” said Will Van Nuys, Campaign Manager for Karrie Delaney for Delegate. “The people of Virginia’s 67th District have a right to know if Jim LeMunyon stands with Donald Trump or if he will explicitly denounce President Trump’s defense of white supremacists.”

    Meanwhile community leader Karrie Delaney addressed the issue head-on stating, “I am deeply troubled by the violence and hatred that came out of Charlottesville. I also find it disgusting and appalling that in a time of great crisis, the President displayed a complete lack of moral leadership in his refusal to condemn white supremacists, Neo-Nazis, the Ku Klux Klan, and the domestic terrorism they brought upon our Commonwealth that left three dead. Now more than ever we need leaders at all levels of government to rise up against violence and hate, defend our democracy, and ensure our Commonwealth remains welcoming and inclusive for all.”
