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.
SAVE THE DATE! COFFEE AND CANVASSING!
Our next RCDC General Meeting is coming up!
WHEN: Saturday, August 13, 10am to 11am
WHERE: The Rappahannock Library, 4 Library Rd, Washington VA
Doors open at 9:30am for coffee and conversation. We come to order at 10am and promise not to take more than an hour of your valuable weekend!
Warren Breiseth, our field rep from Team Wexton, will join us to give us the latest news on the campaign. He’ll then lead off a weekend of door-knocking in the county right after we adjourn. Bring your cell phone and a partner, and consider spending some time talking to our neighbors and getting out the vote. As we just saw in Kansas, Democrats knocking on doors and talking to their neighbors turned the tide on abortion rights in the state!
