NEW: DPVA Releases “Why Hung Cao Is Too Extreme for Virginia”
Richmond, VA – Today the Democratic Party of Virginia released the top 5 reasons why Hung Cao is too extreme for Virginia’s 10th District.
Hung Cao has made his anti-abortion stance a central issue of his campaign. As reported recently by The Washington Post, Cao made an offensive comparison of reproductive healthcare to the atrocities of the Holocaust and refused to answer questions on whether he supported exceptions to abortion bans in cases of rape, incest, or to save the life of the mother.
Earlier this year, when the Supreme Court overturned Roe v. Wade, Hung fully embraced his anti-abortion stance. He even went as far as praising the Supreme Court’s pending decision to destroy decades of women’s rights, tweeting he was “thrilled.” In addition, on his website, Hung has also published a bizarre comparison saying, “How is it that bacteria on Mars is considered life, but a viable fetus is not?”
Cao has also been fully embraced by the swampiest creatures in Washington and would be a rubber stamp for their extreme agenda. He’s opposed to life-saving gun violence prevention measures, claiming, “if it’s not guns, it’s going to be with knives or hammers,” and opposed protections for the LGBTQ youth.
“Hung Cao is out of touch and too extreme for Virginia’s 10th District,” said DPVA Spokesperson Gianni Snidle. “Cao is an anti-abortion extremist who will undoubtedly launch attack after attack on a woman’s right to choose and make it harder for Virginia families to thrive. Virginians deserve a Representative in Congress like Jennifer Wexton who has lowered costs for Virginia families and has been a staunch defender for reproductive rights.”
