CHANTILLY, Va. -- Community leader Karrie Delaney raised $115,281 for the latest financial reporting period, with nearly 2,400 individuals contributing to her race for Virginia's 67th House District this cycle. Additionally, Delaney continues to hold a cash-on-hand advantage, reporting $97,001 in the bank. The reporting period covers the months of July and August.
Will Van Nuys, Campaign Manager for Karrie Delaney, stated, "Jim LeMunyon has made a career of putting politics before people by voting against access to affordable health care for Virginians, voting against full-day Kindergarten for our children, and voting to make it easier to purchase military grade weapons in our community. Now Richmond special interests are paying him back for his loyalty."
Van Nuys continued, "The people of Virginia's 67th District are ready for a change, and eager to elect a true leader who puts people before politics. That is why support and momentum continues to build for Karrie Delaney and her vision to bring innovative economic growth, world class education, and affordable health care for all to Northern Virginia."
