“Virginians need a Lieutenant Governor who can build bridges instead of barriers to progress. They need a Lieutenant Governor who will protect and expand reproductive rights, not attack them. They need a Lieutenant Governor who will make it easier to vote, not harder. Virginians need a Lieutenant Governor who understands their struggles and who can build on the progress we’ve made to make real change in people's lives. I am that candidate, and as Lieutenant Governor, I will be a leader for all Virginians, no matter their political party.”
“I’m grateful for Governor Northam’s decisive action to support Virginia families and businesses as we recover from the Colonial Pipelines cyberattack. His Executive Order will help our Commonwealth prepare by increasing flexibility and funding to prevent any potential shortages.
