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.
“On #WorldParkinsonsDay, I’m here to share that I’ve been diagnosed with Parkinson’s Disease. I’m doing well, and I want to bring about as much good from this diagnosis as I can—including here in Congress”
— Congresswoman Jennifer Wexton 4/11/23
