For years we’ve watched and worried about the state of our politics and asked ourselves why we can’t have more progressives with real vision and real spine in Washington. If we mean it, now’s the time to act. My friend Don Beyer, who has as much vision and willingness to fight for his principles as anyone I’ve come across in public life, is running for Congress in Northern Virginia. And he needs our help.
Eleven Congressional Candidates have been qualified for the Democratic Primary Election on Tuesday, June 10, 2014: Don Beyer Jr., Lavern J. Chatman, Adam P. Ebbin, Charniele L. Herring, Patrick Hope, Alfonso H. Lopez, Mark Levine, Satish Korpe, Bruce Shuttleworth, Derek Hyra, and William D. Euille.
Former Lieutenant Governor Don Beyer echoed today’s radio address by Vice President Biden, calling on Congress to increase the minimum wage to $10.10 per hour, and also urging Congress to pass the FAIR Act, which would give federal employees a 3.3 percent pay hike in 2015.
Team Beyer is busy making phone calls, hosting events, and speaking with each and every Democratic Primary voter in the 8th district. We need your help because we only have 75 days to go!
