Starting early

  John, In 2017, I decided to run for Congress because I wanted to serve the community where I grew up, and I wanted to dive deep on the policy issues that would directly impact people’s lives. Flipping and now holding a district as competitive as Virginia’s 7th is no…

The fragility of our democracy

  John, The sitting President of the United States has again sunk to an unthinkable new low in his efforts to hold onto power at all costs. His actions are dangerous to our Democratic Republic and a betrayal of the office he holds. On a call, which is available for al…
