HASHMI FOR SENATE CAMPAIGN RELEASES FIRST TV AD
RICHMOND, VA – Today, Dr. Ghazala Hashmi’s senate campaign for the 10th district released its first TV advertisement, “Our Voices”.
“We’re excited to showcase Ghazala’s background as an educator and her progressive message to voters,” said campaign manager Philip Stein. “Ghazala wants to go to the Senate to be a champion for education, healthcare, and reproductive freedom.” There are less than two weeks before Democratic voters of the 10th district go to the polls on June 11th to decide who they want to nominate to take on GOP Senator Glen Sturtevant this fall. Below is a transcript of the ad:
“When voices of hate try to divide us, we need to make our voices heard. My name is Ghazala Hashmi. I’m a working mom and a proud first-generation American. At Reynolds Community College, I help students of all backgrounds make a better life. Now, I’m running for State Senate to be a progressive voice for our values – For better public schools, affordable health care, and safer communities.”

Ghazala Hashmi immigrated to the United States from India 50 years ago, and if elected she would make history by becoming the first Muslim woman to hold a seat in Virginia’s legislature. Hashmi wants to bring her diverse background, fresh ideas, and extensive experience to the Capitol, because as an educator of 25 years she understands the struggles that so many people in her district and across the Commonwealth face as they try to get ahead in life. Dr. Hashmi has been endorsed by Secretary Atif Qarni, Senator Jeremy McPike, Delegate Sam Rasoul, Delegate Dawn Adams, former SD-10 candidate Emily Francis, NARAL Pro-Choice Virginia, New Virginia Majority, Keystone Mountain Lakes Regional Council of Carpenters, CASA in Action, Blue Virginia, and Together We Will RVA. The 10th District is the best pick up opportunity Virginia Democrats have in the Senate this year and thus their strongest chance to win back control of the chamber.
