YES YES YES! Per Flippable, Democrat Kathy Tran won her race for a seat in the Virginia state senate. Hooray!
Original text of this post follows.
Support Kathy Tran, a Democrat running for the Virginia state legislature’s House of Delegates.
Flippable, the organization created after the 2016 elections to focus on state and local elections, has identified the state of Virginia as, well, flippable. All 100 seats in its House of Delegates are up for grabs on November 7, 2017.
We at OTYCD hope to prep and post items on the five Virginia candidates in the districts that Flippable has deemed most worthy of your time and money.
Tran and her family fled Vietnam when she was seven months old. She served the U.S. Department of Labor for 12 years before moving on to the National Immigration Forum, a leading immigration advocacy organization.
She wants to strengthen public schools, protect our environment, and prevent gun violence. She supports comprehensive immigration reform and expanding Medicaid. She defends reproductive rights, and has earned the endorsement of NARAL Pro-Choice Virginia.
And as this quote from her Civil Rights and Democracy entry in her Issues section shows, she will defend both in a loud voice and at the slightest provocation:
“Kathy will use her voice to stand against those who seek to undermine a welcoming and inclusive Virginia.
At a time when the most fundamental elements of a well-functioning democracy are being challenged across the country, Kathy will fight against laws and practices that keep Virginians from exercising their right to vote or seek to weaken our vote through gerrymandering or the influence of big money in politics.”
