Videos: At Two VA10 Democratic Forums Last Night, Candidates Mostly Agree on the Issues, Although Three Candidates Say They Wouldn’t Have Voted for the Israel Aid Package

e.g., ALL the participating candidates are pro-choice, pro-democracy, pro-gun-violence-prevention, pro-Ukraine, etc.


Trying to figure out who to vote for in the VA10 Democratic primary? Well, last night, there were not one but TWO forums with most of the candidates, so here’s your chance to hear what they have to say, side by side.

First, here’s video of the Jewish Democratic Council of America (JDCA) forum, with VA10 Democratic candidates Jennifer Boysko, Eileen Filler-Corn, Dan Helmer, Krystle Kaul, David Reid, and Suhas Subramanyam participating. Overwhelmingly, the candidates agreed on the issues – all supporting reproductive freedom, all supporting gun violence prevention measures, all supporting our democracy against assaults on it by Trump and his supporters, etc. Of course, each candidate has different emphases, different backgrounds working on the issues, etc. So check it out and see what you think.

Second, here’s video of a forum last night at the Beth Chaverim Reform Congregation in Loudoun County, with candidates Mark Leighton, David Reid, Michelle Maldonado, Travis Nembhard, Dan Helmer, Jennifer Boysko, Adrian Pokharel, Marion Devoe and Krystle Kaul participating. Again, the candidates largely agreed on the issues, although there were some differences on Israel/Gaza, for instance with Mark Leighton and Jennifer Boysko saying they would NOT have supported the aid package for Israel, and with Michelle Maldonado saying there would need to be conditions on the aid (note: all the candidates said they WOULD have supported the aid packages for Ukraine and Taiwan; also note that Rep. Jennifer Wexton voted for all the aid packages). Anyway, check it out, and of course if you live in VA10, make sure you vote on June 18th!
