Video: Why I’m Running Against Mark “Whatever Offends You Most” Obenshain


    Here’s the speech I gave Sunday evening at the excellent annual Labor Day banquet hosted by the Harrisonburg and Rockingham County Democratic Committees.

    Over two hundred people were in attendance, including our great Attorney General, Mark Herring, and our Lt. Governor and next Governor, Ralph Northam.

    I took the opportunity to tell the people gathered there what my campaign is about, and to have some fun in the process.

    UPDATE by Lowell: April Moore rips into supposed “small-government conservative” Mark “Let’s Block Medicaid Expansion Just to Stick it To President Obama” Obenshain, Mark “Let’s Give Dominion Power Everything It Wants” Obenshain, Mark “Transvaginal Ultrasound is Just What the Doctor Did NOT Order,” etc. She also notes, correctly, that Obenshain is on the wrong side of our democracy and a liveable planet, that he is “serving the Koch brothers” and their “anti-democracy agenda,” and that he wants to do to Virginia “what Scott Walker has done to Wisconsin.”  Great stuff and so true; go April! 🙂
