Don has always been an advocate for women. In 1989, when nary a candidate in Virginia wanted to talk about reproductive rights, Don Beyer asked me to come campaign with him on choice. When he won the Lieutenant Governorship, he was our stalwart ally for 8 years, casting tie vote after tie vote to keep onerous and intrusive policies at bay. He was always there when we needed him. Now Don needs us.
When you campaign side by side with someone, you gain a true understanding of their priorities and passions. Some of Don’s colleagues from President Obama's campaign want to share with you their experience working with Don.
Jim Moran’s retirement could leave a void of seniority and experience in Northern Virginia. We can't let that happen. We worked hard to get President Obama elected, winning Virginia twice, because we know that to affect progressive policy, it takes a leader with a proven record. Someone with a deep understanding of local and international issues. Someone who will support fellow Democrats. Someone who stands by their principles while bringing people together to get things done. Someone like Don Beyer.
