How should politicians be campaigning during the COVID-19 pandemic? Obviously, if they’re at all responsible, they should be doing it virtually, or if in person then of course they should be maintaining social distancing and wearing masks. See below for how to do it right – as demonstrated by Qasim Rashid (D-VA01), Rep. Elaine Luria (D-VA02), Cameron Webb (D-VA05), Rep. Abigail Spanberger (D-VA07) and Rep. Jennifer Wexton (D-VA10) – and how to do it *wrong* – as demonstrated by Republicans Scott Taylor (VA02), Bob Good (VA05), Nick Freitas (VA07) and Aliscia Andrews (VA10).
VA02: Rep. Elaine Luria (D) does it right; Scott Taylor (R) does it wrong.
VA05: Dr. Cameron Webb (D) does it right; Bob Good (R) does it wrong
VA07: Rep. Abigail Spanberger (D) does it right; Nick Freitas (R) does it wrong
VA10: Rep. Jennifer Wexton (D) gets gets it right; Republican Aliscia Andrews…not so much
P.S. In VA01, Democrat Qasim Rashid is doing it right, as is – from what I can tell – Rep. Rob Wittman (R)…in this photo, social distanced if not masked.
