“This is going to be a big night. We are so excited that Senator Klobuchar will join us in our fight to flip both chambers of the Virginia General Assembly. Not only can Senator Klobuchar tell us about how to win in the type of districts we will need to be successful this November, she is also an electric speaker with an amazing story. We are so grateful the Senator will be with us in Richmond on June 15th.”
