Video, Photos: Beto O’Rourke Campaigns for Virginia Democrats


This is *exactly* what we want to see from 2020 Democratic presidential candidates – come to Virginia, spend some time, campaign for House of Delegates, State Senate and local Democratic candidates. Thank you, Beto O’Rourke, and hopefully we’ll see the rest of the 2020 candidates before November 5!

From the Dan Helmer for House of Delegates campaign:


Dan Helmer Holds Rally with Presidential Candidate, Beto O’Rourke

WHAT:  On Saturday evening, Representative Beto O’Rourke will headline a rally for Dan Helmer, the Democratic nominee for the 40th District of Virginia’s House of Delegates.

WHO: Dan Helmer, nominee Virginia House District 40

WHEN:  Saturday, August 30th, 5:30 – 7:30 p.m.

WHERE:  5618 Ox Road, Fairfax Station, VA 22039

WHY:  Helmer is the Democratic Nominee for the House of Delegates in Virginia’s 40th District. His opponent, Tim Hugo, is the Republican House Caucus Chair and the last Republican to hold a state-level office in Northern Virginia. Hugo won by only 99 votes in 2017 and the winner this year will potentially determine the majority in Virginia’s General Assembly.

Representative O’Rourke will be here to highlight the importance of flipping state legislatures. Virginia is one of only four states with legislative elections in 2019, and the only one where control of the state legislature can be flipped. With redistricting decisions decided in the next session, this race takes on added importance.

Helmer has recently highlighted Hugo’s awful record on gun safety, healthcare, and women’s rights and how Hugo has taken over $250,000 from payday lenders before voting to raise potential interest rates on soldiers and students to as much as 300%.
