Don and I are so proud to share with you our second campaign commercial! When NRA President Charlton Heston came to Virginia to campaign against Don, I wasn’t worried. I know that Don would never back down on his principles - gun safety and preventing gun violence is just too important. We need someone like Don to continue standing up to the NRA in Congress.
Friends, I want to take a moment to thank Del. Charniele Herring. Charniele is Alexandria's Delegate and I have never been prouder of our representation. I know how hard it is to get work done in the General Assembly. I know what it's like to have to fight against overwhelming odds to pass legislation that will protect and empower all members of our community.
Former Lieutenant Governor Don Beyer released today his Financial Disclosure Report and the summary of his 2012 tax return.
As I campaign for Congress – and especially today – I think about my mom. Nancy Beyer was the original social justice liberal and she expected no less of her six children. She always taught us to think about the less fortunate in the world. And she told us, time and again, to put ourselves in other people's shoes – to try to imagine what their life is like. So this Mother's Day and for the last few weeks, my mind has been racing to Nigeria.
