Representing Alexandria, Arlington, and Fairfax

Next Tuesday, we have a chance to elect the most progressive majority in the 400 year history of Virginia's state legislature.

But to be successful, we need to get out the vote. 
That means talking to your neighbors and friends. 
It also means knocking on doors and phone-banking.

Do the work this weekend and make sure you have no regrets on Wednesday morning.



Grammy winner Jason Mraz and I will be on Instagram live TOGETHER at 5pm ET today to talk about what's at stake in Virginia's elections next Tuesday. You can join either on Jason's Instagram or mine

It's Jason's first live instagram ever. And I'm incredibly honored that he's doing it with me to help us Flip Virginia this Tuesday.



Why vote in "uncontested" races like mine? Does your vote matter when there's only one candidate on the ballot? YES.

Why? Because every ballot has a write-in line. And we still need a majority of votes to win. Republicans in my district have asked Republicans to use that write-in line to vote me out of office! The only way this unorthodox strategy could possibly prevail is if you don't show up to vote. So please show up! It only takes about five minutes. You can vote any time this week through Saturday or, of course, on Election Day, Tuesday November 5.


I'm proud to represent portions of the City of Alexandria, Arlington County, and Fairfax County. The ballot differs, however, in each jurisdiction I represent.

Not all of the local candidates appear on the ballot as Democrats, but you should know that every one of these candidates has the support of the local Democratic Party Committee. 



Coming Down to the Wire: It's game time.

Donald Trump is likely to face a vote to impeach him before Thanksgiving. If that happens, the Senate will likely decide whether or not to remove him from office by March.

You can have a major impact on whether Trump is removed from office.



Did you get your tax rebate check last week?  If you're married, the tax rebate check should be $220. 

You almost didn't receive that check. Virginia Republicans pushed hard to make all the benefits of the Trump Tax Plan flow to the richest Virginians, but we Democrats fought tooth and nail to make sure that all Virginians would benefit.
