We got a taste of the 10th!

Rep. Jennifer Wexton comes to Rapp!

For a first little taste of life in the 10th Congressional District, we gathered at the Little Washington Winery on a gorgeous Saturday on March 5 to meet and greet our soon-to-be Congresswoman, sip some wine and beer and bask in the sun.

Many thanks to Carl and Donna Henrickson for their hospitality!

You can’t beat the Blue Ridge for setting the mood: Let’s hold the Democratic majority in the US Congress!
