Former Lieutenant Governor and congressional candidate Don Beyer joined the millions of voices arguing that the U.S. Supreme Court should rule in favor of contraceptive coverage and against Hobby Lobby’s arguments today, for moral, economic, and reproductive health reasons.
"Dear Friends, I’m pleased to announce my support for Don Beyer for Virginia’s 8th Congressional District. Don has record of proven leadership. I believe he is best suited to serve the people of Fairfax, Falls Church, Arlington, and Alexandria from Day One."
Former Lt. Gov. Don Beyer, who local operatives say is the top candidate in the crowded 8th District Democratic primary, stressed equal pay and job opportunities for women at a breakfast in the private home of one of his supporters. The 8th District, based in Arlington and Fairfax counties, is open this cycle because longtime Rep. James P. Moran is retiring.
“Don understands the importance of paid family and maternity leave, affordable child care and equal pay,” Governor Kunin told a crowd of supporters this morning. “Implementing these policies is critical if families are to succeed in being good providers and good caregivers. Don will be a strong and effective advocate in Congress for this and more.”
