We have four terrific candidates to run against Republican Denver Riggleman (or Bob Goode) in the 5th District in November. Due to the coronavirus, the CD5 Congressional Primary has been moved to June 23.

Our four primary candidates—RD Huffstetler, John Lesinski, Claire Russo and Cameron Webb—are adjusting their campaigns to reach out to voters online. Look for them on Facebook for events announcements.
And mark your calendars for a series of live streamed virtual forums through May and June until the June 23 primary. View them from the comfort of home.
Please, send me your questions for the candidates! What do you want to know about their positions on voting rights, jobs, the COVID19 crisis, the economy, healthcare, criminal justice…This is the chance to hear their answers.
