YES YES YES! Per Flippable, Democrat David Reid won his race for a seat in the Virginia state senate. Hooray!
Original text of this post follows.
Support Democrat David Reid, who is running for a seat in the Virginia state 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.
Reid spent some of his formative years in a children’s home and became the first in his family to graduate from college. He served in the U.S. Navy Reserve from 1988 to 2011, retiring as a commander.
He wants to expand Medicaid and implement full-day kindergarten for all children living in Loudon County. Having financed his college education with Pell grants, scholarships, and work-study earnings, he wants to fight tuition rises and find ways to make college more affordable. He fully supports reproductive rights, very much including the right to choose. He wants to end partisan gerrymandering. He supports gun safety measures, including mental health checks, universal background checks, and restricting access for people convicted of domestic violence. He would fight animal abuse and cruelty.
