Why this Race Matters most:
It’s time to move forward with positive change: improve transportation for Northern Virginia, strengthen education, grow the economy with green energy jobs, expand Medicaid to bring federal dollars to Virginia, and support women’s reproductive rights. With a strong majority Democratic electorate, this race has a great chance of electing Democrat David Reid, as long as Democrats show up to the polls.
