Senator Adam Ebbin – candidate for the U.S. House of Representatives in Virginia’s 8th Congressional District – won the Alexandria Democratic Committee straw poll on Sunday, April 6th. In the ten-person contest, Ebbin received 90 of the 325 votes cast.
“This win shows the continued momentum my grassroots driven campaign has been gathering,” said Ebbin. “The voters of the 8th district want a proven progressive champion who is willing to stand up for our values and won’t back down from Tea Party extremists in Congress. Last night’s win shows that not only is my message resonating with voters, but we are building the infrastructure to turn out our supporters on Election Day.”
Ebbin’s win at the ADC straw poll comes after an impressive rollout of endorsements. The growing list of Ebbin endorsers includes former Senator and Alexandria Mayor Patsy Ticer, state Senator Chap Petersen (D-Fairfax), state Senator Dave Marsden (D-Fairfax), and Delegate Mark Sickles (D-Fairfax).
