“We’re proud to support Delegate Ayala in her historic candidacy for lieutenant governor because she is a proven leader who embodies the type of leadership that makes government work for the people. She has been an effective leader in the House of Delegates, and if elected lieutenant governor, she’ll expand her bold vision for a prosperous Virginia centered on creating opportunities for all,” said Nathalie Rayes, Latino Victory Fund president & CEO.


Delegate Hala Ayala’s campaign for Lieutenant Governor announced the launch of their first television and radio ad buy. The television and radio ads are the first installment of a strategic ad buy in multiple markets in Virginia showcasing Delegate Ayala’s consistent record of delivering for working families in the General Assembly and history-making campaign.


The fight for access to affordable, quality healthcare is personal to Ayala because when Hala’s son was born, her job at the time offered no health insurance. When her newborn son experienced health complications, Hala was able to get care through Medicaid -- and it saved his life. That is why she will always fight for access to affordable healthcare for all Virginians.


“During my time as Governor, we have made extraordinary progress in our Commonwealth, from expanding Medicaid for 500,000 Virginians to passing critical criminal justice reforms,” said Governor Ralph Northam. “We need to continue building on that progress, and that’s why I am so excited to endorse Delegate Hala Ayala for Lieutenant Governor. Her leadership in the House Democratic majority has been central to these and so many other historic pieces of legislation that are improving the lives of Virginia families. I’ve seen firsthand her indispensable ability to bring people together to make progress, and I know Hala will continue the good work we’ve accomplished to move Virginia forward.”


“I am so excited to endorse Delegate Hala Ayala for Lieutenant Governor,” said Delegate Mullin. “Hala has been a friend and colleague of mine for the last four years and I have enjoyed working with her on our Democratic Majority’s greatest accomplishments. Her passion and positive disposition are infectious and she brightens every room. I know she will bring this care and advocacy to the Lieutenant Governor's office and I hope you’ll join me in supporting her."


“I am proud to support Delegate Hala Ayala for Lieutenant Governor,” said Mayor Stoney.  “I’ve seen Delegate Ayala’s work first hand, and she is exactly the type of leader we need here in Richmond. Her unique perspective and passion has served the Democratic Majority well in the General Assembly, and she has been a voice for our Black and Brown communities. She has been a leader within the General Assembly as it has been able to pass some of the most progressive legislation our Commonwealth has ever seen, and this has directly bettered the city of Richmond and it’s people. Hala consistently leads with justice and equity in mind, and I know she will continue this as Lieutenant Governor. I hope you will join me in supporting her.”
