The following press release is from Del. Kathy Tran’s campaign, in response to the Virginia House GOP statement attacking her for receiving an award from NARAL on Tuesday night. I agree with Del. Tran’s campaign manager analysis, that “House Republicans have been panicking since Bob Thomas unwittingly shared their plan for Virginia – to follow Alabama’s lead and outlaw abortion in almost all circumstances.” So basically, they are doubling down on their assault on women’s reproductive health and freedom, part of their defend-the-GOP-majority-at-all-costs strategy. Let’s make sure they fail.
Tran Campaign Responds to House Republicans’ Desperate Attacks
Kathy Tran for Delegate campaign manager Joann Saridakis released the following statement in response to Virginia House Republicans’ desperate attacks against Delegate Kathy Tran:
“We understand House Republicans have been panicking since Bob Thomas unwittingly shared their plan for Virginia – to follow Alabama’s lead and outlaw abortion in almost all circumstances. This extreme view simply does not represent the values of Virginians.
“House Republicans’ plan to ban abortion in Virginia is an attack on the freedom of women, and a blatant attempt to prevent women from making decisions about their own bodies. Delegate Tran will continue to fight back against House Republicans’ deliberate misinformation campaign, so Virginia women have the health care they need and deserve.”
