March 11, 2014 (Alexandria, Va.) — Don Beyer, former Lieutenant Governor of Virginia and candidate for the 8th Congressional District, released a statement today on Alexandria Mayor Bill Euille’s call for a Clean Campaign Pledge in the 8th Congressional District Democratic primary.

“I agree with Mayor Euille’s call for a clean election.  We’re all good Democrats and we should be running on our records and on the issues,” Beyer said.

Candidates around the country have promoted and signed “Clean Campaign Pledges” promising not engage in personal attacks on their opponents, focus on the issues and condemn false and defamatory rhetoric.
