Congrats to our nominee! Primary Day Triumph!

Congratulations to our nominee, Abigail Spanberger. We will work our hearts out for you! On to November!

And congratulations to the Culpeper County Democratic Committee and its Precinct Operations team for their amazing job on primary day. We had greater visibility and presence than we’ve ever had before. We had tables at all but one precinct. (Lignum was the only holdout — and we already have volunteers willing to staff Lignum in November.) We passed out hundreds of our ‘Join the CCDC’ postcards, designed by the Chairwoman of the CCDC’s new Design Committee, Alicia Guy. We reached many new potential members and gathered dozens of email addresses for our mailing list. We built momentum and trounced the Culpeper GOP’s lackadaisical showing. June 12th was a great step towards turning Culpeper blue!

 

And one final congratulations to Candidate Dan Ward. His incredible effort, unwavering support for the people of the 7th District, and absolute class, graciousness, and unity on behalf of Abigail Spanberger is a credit to the Democratic Party!
