Here are a few national and Virginia news headlines, political and otherwise, for Monday, November 13.

  • From the Kimberly Adams for Congress campaign::

    Kimberly Adams, a school librarian and community leader in Fairfax County, has withdrawn her candidacy for Virginia’s 10th District seat in the U.S. House of Representatives. As a mother, teacher and community advocate, Mrs. Adams strives to achieve excellence and equity for all.

    “I am moving forward with the knowledge that someday I may seek elected office to improve and protect the lives of those in my community. That time is not now for me and my family. I leave this race with several qualified candidates, all of whom would better represent the interests of Virginians than Barbara Comstock. I remain involved with the Democratic Party of Virginia and will continue to serve on the 10th Congressional District Committee.”

    Mrs. Adams is the mother of two sons, age 9 and 4. She is married to Chris Adams, also a teacher in Fairfax County Public Schools. She has previously served as President of the Fairfax Education Association and is a member of several other community organizations and boards including the Fairfax County Human Services Council.
