The Rappahannock County Democrats are heartbroken at the news of Rep. Jennifer Wexton’s decision not to seek re-election next year due to advancing neurological illness. She has been a fierce defender of our rural community since her election in 2018 as one of a trio of young progressive Virginia women—along with Abigail Spanberger and Elaine Luria. She loves the Rapp Dems, which she characterized as “small but mighty!” It was our great honor to campaign for her in the “new” 10th. We understand and support her decision and wish her all the best, and we will hold her spirit in our hearts in our work for all Virginia Democrats.

WHY THIS IS SO IMPORTANT.
Democrats hold the State Senate by a slim two-vote margin. Our majority has held the line against right wing efforts to destroy abortion access, retract environmental protections, reduce voting access, and roll back the progressive legislation of recent years under Governor Northam. Glen Youngkin’s forces are throwing millions to regain the Senate.
Russet Perry is running in the new Senate District 31. This race is key to holding the majority and preventing a Republican trifecta.
