It should go without saying that literally EVERY SINGLE DEMOCRAT should be supporting Lashrecse Aird for VA Senate over the appalling, embarrassing incumbent Sen. Joe Morrissey. If you haven’t endorsed Aird yet, what on earth are you waiting for?!? And if you’re actually supporting Morrissey, you need a values/ethics check, badly.
My early humble beginnings is why I am deeply committed to our community and the working families of Senate District 13!
