We’re falling behind

Hi John — I know it’s early, but I’ve been up for a while. Our first reporting deadline since we won the Democratic nomination expires this Wednesday at midnight. So I’ve been working around the clock (and drinking plenty of coffee) to make sure our numbers look as strong as possibl…

Some good news and bad news

Hey John, we have some good and bad news to share with you: The good news is that we’ve seen a ton of grassroots energy and support since Hala became the Democratic nominee. It’s clear folks are excited to make history by electing Virginia’s first woman of color to statewide office.…

Can I explain?

Hi John — In a moment, I’m going to ask you to make a contribution toward my campaign for Lt. Governor. But first, I hope you will give me a chance to explain why your support is so important. At the end of the month, we will close our books on our second quarter fundraising. The ne…

Help Hala make history this November

Hey John — Two weeks ago, Hala secured the Democratic nomination for Lt. Governor. Now, we must build the resources to defeat our right-wing opponent and make history this November. Will you chip in to Hala’s historic campaign for Lt. Governor right now? Affordable health care, wome…

John — My name is Hala Ayala. I'm a Virginia delegate, a cyber-security expert, a single mom — and this November, I'll be the first woman of color elected to statewide office in Virginia. Please make a contribution of any amount to say you’re all in for our movement and help us make…

Medicaid saved my life

John — In a moment, I’m going to ask you to sign my petition demanding that the Commonwealth expand Medicaid. But first, I want to share a story with you. It’s long, but important — and I hope you will take the time to read it. I was 24 years old and working at a gas station when I …

This will only take a minute (or two, tops!)

Hi John — One of the best parts about campaigning is getting to talk with folks from across the Commonwealth and hear their personal stories, concerns, and hopes for a better future. But all too often, what politicians hear in one ear goes right out the other, resulting in a governm…

Re: Winsome Sears

John, we need to talk about Hala’s new opponent. Last month, Virginia Republicans nominated radical, pro-Trump Winsome Sears as their candidate for Lt. Governor. If Sears wins in November, you can guarantee affordable health care, women's rights, voting protections, and so much more…

Will you become a founding donor of our campaign?

This Tuesday, we secured the Democratic nomination for Lt. Governor, John. We got one step closer to ending Virginia's 400-year history of never electing a woman to statewide office — and one step closer to ensuring working families like mine have a seat at the table, and a voice in…

We did it

John, we did it. Never in our 400 year history has Virginia elected a woman of color to statewide office — tonight, we’ve come that much closer. I am so proud to be your Democratic nominee for Lieutenant Governor. Before I go any further, I have to ask: Can I count on you to become …

Election Day is finally here

Wow John, it’s hard to believe that Election Day is already here. For those of you who have already voted, thanks for making your voice heard. If you haven’t voted yet, there's still time! Make sure you’re in line at your polling location by 7 PM. And if you’re able, I hope you will…

Tomorrow is Election Day

John — Tomorrow is Election Day, so this is an all-hands-on-deck situation for our campaign. We only have 24 hours left to reach undecided voters and get out the vote, so we are setting an emergency goal of raising $2,500 before polls close tomorrow at 7 PM. Please, rush $10 or more…

Hi John — I just wanted to reach out one last time before our emergency weekend deadline expires at midnight. We’re still a little behind where we need to be — and with Election Day just two days away, that’s bad news for our campaign. John, we can’t afford to pull back on our resou…

Hi John — it’s Hala. We’re kicking off our big weekend of action today to turn out the voters we need to win this primary on Tuesday. But here’s the bad news: Our field team is running out of funds and they need our help ASAP. If we can’t raise $5,000 this weekend, we’ll have to pul…

Please join me in supporting Hala Ayala’s campaign for Lt. Governor

Hi John — Never in Virginia’s 400-year history have we had a woman elected as Lieutenant Governor. It’s time to change that by electing Hala Ayala. When Hala was elected to the House of Delegates in 2017, she got right to work. From introducing and ratifying the Equal Rights Amendme…

Bad news

Bad news, John. We missed our end-of-month goal last night. With the primary just one week away, missing a deadline like this could cost us the election. That’s why we are extending our deadline until tonight at midnight. Will you rush a donation of just $5 to help us catch up on ou…
