Embattled Va. Dems stockpile cash ahead of November

WASHINGTON — Targeted Democratic incumbents from Virginia’s U.S. congressional delegation were padding their war chests as the election year kicked off.

The COVID-19 pandemic has altered the landscape for politicians in Virginia and across the country as many have been forced to cut back on active fundraising and campaigning. But the most recent campaign finance reports show that Virginia Democrats who are expected to face the toughest reelection challenges this fall had stocked up more cash than their competitors by the end of March.

The Republican expected to face the toughest race — freshman Rep. Denver Riggleman — had less cash on hand than his top-raising Democratic opponent, although Riggleman has raised nearly twice as much during the election cycle.

US House District 7 – VA 2020

Abigail Spanberger took an oath to protect and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic…When she saw partisan politics threatening the country she has worked so hard to protect, she knew it was her time to stand up for the people in the 7th District.

At the in-person convention in Caroline County on July 18, Nick Freitas, Delegate from Culpeper,
received 56% of the vote on the third ballot, outlasting five challengers in his bid to secure the GOP nomination in the one-time Republican stronghold that turned blue in 2018.

In the final round of balloting, Freitas topped Del. John McGuire, R-Goochland, who received 44% of the vote. The win for Freitas, who sought the GOP U.S. Senate nomination in 2018, sets up what is likely to be a closely watched contest with Spanberger in a swing district that includes eight rural counties and large swaths of suburban Chesterfield and Henrico.

Beyer On No Ban Act: Muslim Ban “Is Not Just Evil, It is Stupid”
Beyer Government page , Don Beyer , July 22, 2020 (Short)

July 22, 2020 (Washington, D.C.) – The House of Representatives today passed the No Ban Act, legislation to overturn President Trump’s executive order banning persons from certain countries from traveling or immigrating to the United States. Rep. Don Beyer (D-VA), a co-lead on the bill who introduced legislation to stop Trump’s Muslim Ban after witnessing chaos and turmoil at Dulles Airport created by the ban in January of 2017, spoke in favor of the legislation during debate:

[Remarks as delivered]

“Madam Speaker, I rise in support of [Congresswoman] Judy Chu’s NO BAN Act.

“In the words of John Lewis – ‘When you see something that is not right, not fair, not just, you have to speak up. You have to do something.’

“The NO BAN Act is doing something.

“It is stating in clear, powerful legislation that America will never again let racism or religious intolerance be a barrier to lawful immigration.

“We will not allow ignorance or xenophobia to dictate America’s immigration policies. Our strength has always – always – been our diversity.

“A functional Muslim ban or a ban of entire countries simply because they comprise a race or a religion that some president does not like – is not just evil, it is stupid.

“Watch which American communities recover most quickly from the pandemic: those with the most diverse populations.

“I stand here today, as I stood at [Dulles] Airport at the onset of the ban, to ensure our immigration system cannot be hijacked by hatred.

“I yield back.”
