Sen. Jim Webb speaks to the VIP reception prior to the Arlington County Democratic Committee’s Jefferson Jackson Dinner last night in Ballston. Webb speaks about the pressing need for criminal justice reform, about Arlington County being a “flagship” for the state, about the GI Bill helping a “half a million” veterans, and about how his visit to Thailand “broke my heart.”
P.S. Listening to Jim Webb reminds me that Susan Mariner, who is up for election as DPVA 1st Vice Chair today, was one of the superstars of the 2006 Webb campaign. Go Susan!
UPDATE: Also, thanks to Arlington County Democratic Committee Precinct Operations Chair Kip Malinosky, who I spoke with at the Arlington JJ Dinner last night, for his endorsement of Susan for DPVA 1st Vice Chair!
