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!
Wow! The Culpeper Democrats are so proud of our nominee, Abigail Spanberger, after tonight’s Culpeper debate with Dave Brat. Standing up to pharmaceutical lobbies and special interests. Service to our country. High speed broadband is an economic imperative. Kids shouldn’t have to do their homework at McDonald’s. Strong CTE programs and apprenticeships. Farmers don’t want bailouts, they want to sell their crops. With determination and focus, anything is achievable. Our next Congresswoman!
Culpeper Democrats greet Abigail as she arrives. What positive energy!

There’s three big ways we can reach voters: at their door, on the phone, and through the mail. Nervous about knocking on doors? Hate talking on the phone? Still want to help Abigail Spanberger and Tim Kaine get elected? Help us reach voters by writing a postcard!
Not everyone can vote on November 6th. Voting early is easy. All you do is bring your photo ID to the Culpeper Election office, 151 N Main, 3rd floor, no weekdays between 8:30 and 4:30, or on Saturday October 27th or November 3rd, fill out a one-page form, and vote then. But not everyone understands how it works. That’s why with less than a month until the election, the Culpeper Democrats are writing election reminder postcards educating Culpeper voters about earning voting.
Want to help? Our office is also open throughout the coming weeks (see our office hours here) if you want to stop by and pick up a stack of cards or drop them off.
Postcard Writing parties!
We’ll be hosting postcard parties over the next few weeks. Check this space for information! our first party is this Friday at 5pm. We’ll have pizza and stickers.

Urgent! Stamps needed!
The CCDC has a hard limit of $1000 that we’re allowed to spend on this election. That means we can’t purchase stamps for every postcard we want to send. So when you return the postcards, please stamp a few of them as well!
What a great turnout for our first postcard party!
Just some of the finished cards!

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!
