|Statement from Delegate Eileen Filler-Corn, 56th Speaker of the House of Delegates:
“As Speaker of the House of Delegates, I worked with Governor Northam and Democratic leadership to pass historic gun safety legislation to keep our communities safe. With each passing week, it becomes even more clear that we must take further action to curb our nation’s gun violence epidemic, including passing an assault weapons ban. We need leaders in the Virginia Senate who will vote on the side of Virginians, not the gun lobby – Saddam Salim will be that leader. I know he will work to expand our progress to make our communities safer, and so much more. I am proud to endorse Saddam in the Democratic Primary for Senate District 37.”
More information about Saddam Salim can be found here. Virginia Senate District 37 covers Fairfax City, Falls Church City, and parts of Fairfax County. Early voting began last weekend in the Democratic Primary, which will be held on June 20th.
Speaker Eileen Filler-Corn expanded her Energized for Change PAC in 2022 to focus on “electing Democrats from the schoolhouse to the statehouse.” Over the past year, Energized for Change has endorsed and supported the campaigns of nearly 60 candidates at the state and local levels in Virginia, including 18 candidates in General Assembly contests this year ahead of the June 20th Primary Election.
