Abigail wins! But we’re not done yet.

Wow. What an election. On Tuesday, 41% of Culpeper County voted for Abigail Spanberger. Turnout was near presidential levels. In 2016, Eileen Bedell received 34% of Culpeper’s vote. Ralph Northam got 37% in 2017. Each year builds on the next. Last year laid the ground work for this year. This year prepares us for next year. Next year gets us ready for 2020. I am so proud of the Culpeper Democrats and your incredibly hard work that made this victory possible. Each of you who wrote postcards, made phone calls, knocked on doors, stood in front of the polling place in the rain passing out sample ballots, donated, and voted — you are all heroes. Thank you.

–Ben Hixon, Chair, Culpeper Dems

Abigail Spanberger has our farmers’ backs.

At last month’s Culpeper Farm Tour, Abigail Spanberger spoke to our small farmers, some of them worried about their future under President Trump’s tariffs, which wildly interfere with agricultural markets. As she rightly observed during the recent Congressional debate: “Farmers don’t want bailouts, they want to sell their crops.” Abigail will have our farmers’ backs. 10 days!
