Dear Friend,

This Tuesday, March 3, is the Democratic Presidential Primary in Virginia. Virginians will help decide who will take on Donald Trump this November.

Polls are open on Election Day from 6 am to 7 pm. You will vote at your regular polling location. More details on where and when to vote below.

We are fortunate to have several truly outstanding public servants and candidates running to be the Democratic nominee for President of the United States. I will work my heart out to elect whomever ends up being the nominee. 

Many folks have asked me who I will be voting for in the primary, and after careful thought, I have made my decision:

I hereby endorse:

Mayor Pete Buttigieg for President of the United States

We need a President who shares and articulates our values—a brilliant creative mind paired with an empathetic heart.

Someone with courage enough to never desert us in a tough fight, but also humility and self-reflection sufficient to change direction when warranted.

We deserve a President who hears the voice of the voiceless and who champions the causes of the powerless—someone who celebrates the rich tapestry of the American mosaic.

We live in troubled times, in a divided nation full of mistrust and fear. So we need a candidate who can not only beat Donald Trump but who also, as President, can comfort us and bring our nation together to heal.

I believe Mayor Pete Buttigieg is the best candidate to do just that. That’s why I will be voting for him in the Virginia primary. I encourage you to do so as well this Tuesday, March 3.

Primaries are tough decisions for me. It always feels like I'm trying to decide among members of my family. I have deep respect for most of the other candidates running.

So even if you don't agree with my particular choice, I do urge you to exercise your right to vote.

And I will look forward, along with you, to casting my vote for the Democratic nominee on Tuesday, November 3.

There's still time to vote absentee,
but TODAY (Saturday, February 29) is the last day you can.

I'll be voting today because I'll be back in Richmond on Super Tuesday.

THIS TUESDAY, March 3, is Election Day
