Qasim Rashid Asks a Great Question: “Is the Virginia GOP ever going to debate the issues instead of name calling?”

Republicans throwing around phrases like "Islamic terrorism," "radical extremist," "'controversial' Black Christian," "Antifa"

Spot-on post by Democratic State Senate nominee (SD28) Qasim Rashid:

Is the Virginia GOP ever going to debate the issues instead of name calling? Consider this:

As I run for Senate in District 28, my GOP opponent refuses to address the issues but instead calls me “a radical extremist” and tries to tie me to “Islamic terrorism.”

As Joshua Cole for Delegate runs for House in District 28, his GOP opponent refuses to address the issues but instead calls Joshua a “controversial” Black Christian.

As Jess Foster for Delegate runs for House in District 88, her GOP opponent refuses to address the issues but instead calls her supporters “Antifa.”

Maybe our GOP opponents ignore the issues & name call & fear monger because they believe Virginians prefer insults to solutions??

Joshua Cole, Jess Foster, and myself reject such divisive rhetoric. We want to bring Democrats and Republicans together for fairness. We believe that Virginians want us to uphold civility and compassion—and advance actual policy ideas supported by the vast majority of Virginia’s working families. Raising the living wage. Expanding healthcare access. Paying teachers more. Fixing our roads. Working families—that is who we are fighting for. That is why we are winning bi-partisan support.

On November 5th, join us in rejecting incivility, hatred, and fear mongering, and vote for Jess Foster for HD-88, Joshua Cole for HD-28, and Qasim Rashid for SD-28.

Let’s unite and create the compassionate world we all want for our children. Let’s lead by example. Let’s stand together.
