Momentum continues to grow on the campaign trail for Team Delaney
CHANTILLY, Va. -- Community leader Karrie Delaney today released the following statement after another successful weekend of action with 99 days before Election Day on November 7th.
“I'm thrilled to see the continued grassroots support for our campaign, and my vision for Virginia's 67th House District, growing everyday. It is time to elect leaders who will put aside the political games and focus on bringing real solutions to the people" stated Delaney. "I'm dedicated to bringing my years of local leadership and public service to Richmond to fight for innovative economic development that grows our local economy, world class education for our children, long-range, comprehensive transportation solutions to ease traffic congestion, and access to affordable health care for all."
Will Van Nuys, Campaign Manager for Karrie Delaney for Delegate, added "To date our campaign has knocked over 28,500 doors with the help of more than 150 activists, and out-raised Republican Jim LeMunyon the last 3 finance reports with over $180,000 raised this cycle from more than 1,500 grassroots supporters. The growing momentum in this campaign is another example that Virginia's 67th House District is ready for a change from Jim LeMunyon's eight years of failing the people by voting to make it easier to purchase machine guns and other military grade weapons in our community, or his refusal to expand access to affordable health care for over 400,000 Virginians. It is time to elect a true leader in Karrie Delaney who will fight for the people of Virginia's 67th House District."
