12PM SATURDAY IN HENRICO: McClellan to Kick off Canvass with Aird, Highlight Importance of Race

HENRICO, VA — Today, U.S. Representative Jennifer McClellan (VA-04) announced her endorsement of former Del. Lashrecse Aird’s campaign for State Senate in the 13th District. McClellan and Aird will campaign together on Saturday at 12PM in Eastern Henrico, jointly kicking off a canvass to get out the vote ahead of the June 20 primary.

McClellan and Aird served together in the General Assembly, and were chief Senate and House patrons of bills in 2020 and 2021 to fully fund the Virginia Board of Education’s Standards of Quality. McClellan was also the lead patron of the Reproductive Health Protection Act, the Virginia Clean Economy Act, and the Voting Rights Act of Virginia. She was elected to Congress in a special election in February, overperforming the Democratic vote share in the 4th District.

Voters in Senate District 13 have fewer than 20 days to vote in this critical race that could be the difference for the future of abortion rights in the Commonwealth.

“I am proud to endorse Lashrecse Aird in her campaign for Senate District 13,” said Congresswoman Jennifer McClellan.  “Del. Aird has been a leader on key issues that affect voters in the 13th District – education funding, public safety, social justice, and reproductive freedom. I’ve worked with Del. Aird in the General Assembly to deliver results for Virginians, and I know she will continue that record of results in the State Senate.”

“Having led directly on the key issues that affect the 13th District, Congresswoman Jennifer McClellan knows the families of these communities personally. I am committed to picking up where she left off and fighting in the State Senate to protect the progress she’s made on education, social and environmental justice and especially our reproductive freedom,” said Lashrecse Aird.

On Saturday, Lashrecse Aird for State Senate will host a canvass launch event with special guest Rep. McClellan (VA-04).
