See below for a press release from Del. Dan Helmer (D) about a new Political Action Committee, “Secure Progress,” which will work to prevent history from repeating itself – namely, the history of how Democrats got trounced in Virginia the year after Barack Obama’s election as president. As Del. Helmer says, “That’s why we’re doubling down to register new voters and ensure that the record turnout we saw in Virginia and around the country that turned Virginia blue and elected President Joe Biden and Vice President Kamala Harris doesn’t fade away.” Just remember that Virginia is only “blue” if Democratic voters turn out in large numbers. If not, it could go “purple” or even “red,” despite having gone strongly “blue” the past four years…thanks to an anti-Trump backlash.
HELMER LAUNCHES PAC TO REGISTER VIRGINIA VOTERS
FAIRFAX, VA — Today, Dan Helmer announced the formation of a new Political Action Committee, Secure Progress. Secure Progress will conduct outreach to unregistered potential voters to make them aware of local candidates and elections and offer resources to help them get registered and ready to vote.
“After the historic election of President Obama in 2008, we lost the Governor’s mansion here in Virginia in 2009, and the U.S. House in 2010. We simply cannot afford to let this history repeat itself,” said Dan Helmer, founder of the PAC and Delegate for Virginia’s 40th District. “That’s why we’re doubling down to register new voters and ensure that the record turnout we saw in Virginia and around the country that turned Virginia blue and elected President Joe Biden and Vice President Kamala Harris doesn’t fade away.”
Further details about Secure Progress can be found at the committee’s website: secureprogress.org. Secure Progress makes use of an interactive FundMap so that those who share its values can target their support locally. Any candidates or organizations interested in collaboration should reach out directly at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Secure Progress is a Political Action Committee that introduces potential voters to Democratic elected officials and candidates.
