Video: Del. Schuyler VanValkenburg (D) Announces Candidacy for State Senate in SD16 Against Republican Incumbent Siobhan Dunnavant


As expected, Del. Schuyler VanValkenburg has announced his candidacy for Virginia State Senate. According to VanValkenburg, he’s announcing his run against State Sen. Siobhan Dunnavant (R) “because Henrico needs a leader who will fight for equality and women’s reproductive rights” and “we need leaders who will focus on a strong middle-class economy, affordable health care and world class schools.” SD16 is a key, winnable district for Democrats to win next year. It’s located 100% within suburban Henrico County, was won by Terry McAuliffe last year by 6 points and by Ralph Northam in 2017 by 8 points, and it’s currently represented by a right winger who voted for a 20-week abortion ban and who is a wingnut in other ways as well (e.g., on guns, healthcare, etc.). So, bottom line, Democrats need to win this seat to INCREASE our narrow (21-19) majority in the State Senate.  Let’s do it!
