Thanks to the Falls Church City Democratic Committee (and its Chairwoman, Cindy Cunningham) for these highlights from today’s Fairfax Democratic Committee “Road to Richmond” event. I’ll add more as I see them, but for now:

  • Fairfax County Chair Jeff McKay “[said Youngkin] had time to launch an investigation into the FFX County schools over an administrative mailing situation but only had time to ‘monitor the situation and pray’ when a 6-year-old takes a gun & shoots his teacher.”
  • Rep. Don Beyer (D-VA08) said “The country will look to Virginia in 2023 to see what will happen in the country in 2024.”
  • VA Senate Majority leader Dick Saslaw (D) “[said] Governor Youngkin’s budget amendment for $50,000 to pay for prosecuting people who get an abortion in violation of the abortion ban Youngkin wants to enact, will come out of the Senate ‘over my dead body.'”
