DCCC Adds Dr. Cameron Webb To Red To Blue Program

314 Action Poll Shows This Race in a Statistical Dead Heat 

DCCC Chairwoman Cheri Bustos today announced Dr. Cameron Webb would be added to the DCCC’s highly competitive Red to Blue program after a resounding win in the VA-05 Democratic primary.

Webb has earned a spot on the DCCC’s Red to Blue program by surpassing aggressive goals for grassroots engagement, local support, campaign organization and fundraising. Beyond his demonstrated ability to build a winning campaign infrastructure, Webb’s experience as a practicing physician serves this district well.

“Dr. Cameron Webb knows a thing or two about putting in the work to serve others. A lawyer and doctor by training, Dr. Webb has served in Charlottesville’s COVID-19 unit while raising his two young children,” DCCC Chairwoman Cheri Bustos said. “Now he is running for Congress to bring that same commitment and dedication to service with him as he provides honest leadership on issues of health and justice. When he is elected, Dr. Webb will be the first Black doctor to serve as a voting member in Congress, and with his strong campaign, anchored at the grassroots, I am confident he is on track to win his race and heal some of the divides in his part of Virginia.”

The race in VA-05 is highly competitive. Recent polling conducted on behalf of 314 Action shows Webb within the margin of error with GOP nominee Bob Good, trailing just 43-41. And after Republican Good ousted incumbent Congressman Denver Riggleman in a corrupt nominating convention, both Cook Political Report and Sabato’s Crystal Ball shifted the race to “Lean Republican” from “Likely Republican.”

Red to Blue is a highly competitive and battle-tested DCCC program that arms top-tier candidates with organizational and fundraising support to help them continue to develop strong campaigns. Additionally, through Red to Blue the DCCC provides strategic guidance, staff resources, candidate trainings and more.
