Reason for Seeking Public Office:

"I'm running for Congress because I've had enough of the backward agendas and hateful language in Washington. I have spent my career fighting for the underdog -- both in my law practice and in the General Assembly -- and I want to build on that work in our capital. I'll fight every day for equal rights, economic justice, and a strong safety net for our most vulnerable citizens. I'll be a champion for progressive priorities, and I will always put Virginians first. I would be honored to have your support."
