🦉It’s a hootin’ good time here in Virginia, literally! 🦉

  John, This weekend, I was campaigning across our district in Culpeper, Orange, and Prince William Counties! I was out meeting voters, getting people excited about our new 7th District lines, spending time with local officials, and collecting petition signatures for ballot …

We need driven leaders like Deb McGrath in the House

  John, This week, I was proud to endorse my friend, Deb McGrath, in her campaign to win Wisconsin’s 3rd Congressional District. We need service-minded leaders like her in the House, and I hope you’ll support both our campaigns by splitting a contribution today. SPLI…

A rapid trajectory

  John, Before leaving office, Gov. Ralph Northam outlined Virginia’s trajectory towards establishing universal broadband thanks, in large part, to the federal investments my colleagues and I voted to secure in Congress. In just a four-year span, Virginia increased broadband…

I’m leading the charge to ban members of Congress from trading stocks

  John, I’m proud of my legislation to ban members of Congress from buying, selling, or trading individual stocks while they serve in Congress. My efforts are gaining momentum as our bipartisan legislation gains more co-sponsors and endorsements each day! Take a look at …

My bill to ban members of Congress from trading stocks is gaining traction!

  John, Members of Congress should not be allowed to buy, sell or trade stocks while they’re serving in Congress. The American people deserve to know that we are solely focused on serving them, and not our own financial interests. CONTRIBUTE Banning stock o…

Did you see this?

  John, It’s Adam Spanberger, and I love yard signs. Yard signs are an easy way for voters to show support and help get Abigail’s name out there.  In the new 7th District, Abigail has plenty of new voters to connect with, and distributing yard signs is a great way to get the word out a…

Will you build the foundation of our campaign?

  John, As I look ahead to this year’s election, we know ours will be a close one - like both my prior races. In 2021, Virginia saw engaged Republican momentum and the Republican Governor-elect won our district by more than 5 points. In swing districts like ours, we win by …

I’m so proud of this bill

Important VA-07 update

  John, At an early age, my family taught me the importance of service. That commitment to the strength and security of our nation is what led me to serve as a federal agent, then serve as a CIA case officer. In 2017, I launched an historic campaign to represent the people o…
