I didn’t know Virginia Democratic activist and donor Mary Ann Hovis well, but I do remember being at her house for a fundraiser for Jim Webb (with pre-disgraced John Edwards) back in 2006. I’m very surprised and saddened to hear of her death, and send deepest condolences to her husband Bob, her family and friends. Rest in peace.
Mary Ann Hovis, deeply loved by so many was called home last night just after midnight. RIP most wonderful of women. https://t.co/wbyzk1RDRh

State Sen. Scott Surovell: “Very sad this morning to learn that we lost Mary Ann Hovis last night. Mary Ann was one of the most passionate, selfless, dedicated and hard working Democrats in Fairfax County. Always read to help anyone. Devoted to her husband Bob. A proud Southwest Virginia girl and the daughter of the Fighting Ninth. I’m really gonna miss her.”
