Video: 7th CD Democratic Candidate Forum — Dan Ward, Abigail Spanberger — Moderated by Culper Dems Vice Chair Tristan Shields


From 2017 Democratic House of Delegates candidate and current Culpeper Democrats Vice Chair Tristan Shields, who moderated this VA-07 Democratic forum last Saturday: “2018 is a big election year in Virginia. Democrats in the Seventh Congressional District have two great candidates to choose from – Abigail Spanberger and Dan Ward. One of them will take on Dave Brat this November. Join me, the Culpeper Democrats and the Culpeper Persisters for a rebroadcast of last week’s Candidate Forum in Culpeper.” If you live in VA-07, check out these two candidates, decide who you want to support, get involved for your candidate and make sure you VOTE  in the Democratic primary on June 12!

P.S. I didn’t see much disagreement on the issues, and not much tension between the two candidates, other than one time when Ward pushed back against what he said was “an attack” against him for supposedly taking “dark money.” According to Ward, that is not accurate, that in fact both candidates “take money from outside groups.” He added that the group, “With Honor,” is a “veterans organization that is transparent of where they get their funding from.”
