Presidential adviser David Axelrod today released a video endorsing Don Beyer for Congress, joining a group of top Obama advisers who have announced their support for the former Lieutenant Governor. “Don is a great public official, a great progressive champion … it is with great enthusiasm that I say that I’m for Don Beyer for Congress,” Axelrod says in the two-minute video, noting that he’s known Don since 2007 when Beyer and his family “were trudging around the snows of Iowa, working to elect a young senator named Barack Obama president of the United States.”
Please join Don, Megan and Team Beyer for a happy hour with special guests Melody Barnes, Jim Messina, Pete Rouse and Julianna Smoot on Thursday, May 22nd, 5:30 to 7:30 pm at Café Asia, 1550 Wilson Boulevard, Arlington, VA 22209.
This last Thursday I celebrated my 40th anniversary in business in Northern Virginia. May 15, 1974, I was hired as a parts driver. When my friends from college, headed off to law school or medical school, asked me why I chose to stay in business - to work on cars, and eventually to sell cars to families - I always told them the same thing, "every single day I see exactly how much the small things I do affect the lives of those I work for."
“The science is clear that climate change is a real and present danger. We owe it to future generations to take action now.” –Don Beyer
