We really need Jill McCabe to win this race, both for our chances of taking back control of the Virginia State Senate, and also to say “good riddance” to one of the most extreme, bigoted, bat****-crazy members of the Senate, Dick Black. Don’t believe me? Check out What Is It With Loudoun Republicans?!?

ASHBURN – Yesterday, accomplished pediatrician Dr. Jill McCabe officially launched her campaign for State Senate District 13 surrounded by a large crowd of supporters and community leaders. Notables in attendance included First Lady Dorothy McAuliffe; Laura Herring; Senators Jennifer Wexton, David Marsden, Barbara Favola; Delegates Kathleen Murphy and Ken Plum; Leesburg Vice Mayor Kelly Burk; Leesburg Town Councilmember David Butler; and Purcellville Town Councilmember Karen Jimmerson.
Set against the backdrop of a lush Loudoun County landscape, Dorothy McAuliffe, the event’s keynote speaker, told guests that “We really need Jill in the Senate.” She highlighted Jill’s strong background in business and health. “As a doctor, a small business owner, and a mom, she knows exactly what it will take in Richmond to give her constituents the best opportunities possible. She’ll bring a common sense approach to government that will continue to grow Loudoun and Prince William counties into some of the best places to live and raise a family in the country.”
McCabe told the standing-room only crowd that what sets her apart is her focus on the Commonwealth and what’s important to 13th District residents. “As a pediatrician, I am constantly focused on my patients and what is most important to them. With the work I do for my kids’ school, I focus on the students and what is most important to them. And as State Senator, I will be completely focused on the people who live in my district and what their needs are in order to create the greatest opportunities here in Loudoun and Prince William counties.”
