1 Day before Primary Election and Delaney Campaign has all the Momentum
CHANTILLY, Va. -- Community leader Karrie Delaney today earned the endorsement of Senator David Marsden to represent Virginia's 67th House District, which stretches from Chantilly and South Riding to Fair Lakes and Oakton. To date, the Delaney campaign has earned the endorsement of 14 elected officials, knocked on over 16,600 doors, made over 23,800 phone calls, and is carrying strong momentum into the final day before the election.
“I am pleased to announce my endorsement of Karrie Delaney for the Democratic nomination to represent the 67th House of Delegates district. While all three candidates in the primary have much to offer, Karrie Delaney has presented herself as the most experienced and best prepared candidate to conduct a winning general election campaign and represent the people of the 67th District," said Senator Marsden. "Karrie is an extremely hard worker who has raised the necessary resources and organized a team of supporters that has set her apart, her knowledge of the issues is very strong, and I am pleased to recommend her candidacy in this year's election."
“I'm humbled to earn Senator Marsden's endorsement of my campaign before voters head to the polls tomorrow," said Delaney. "We both share a strong commitment to public service and I look forward to working with him to fight for Northern Virginia's fair share of education funding, comprehensive transportation solutions, innovative economic growth, and health care for all."
