YES YES YES! Per Flippable, Democrat Jennifer Carroll Foy won her race for a seat in the Virginia state senate. Hooray!
Original text of this post follows.
Support Democrat Jennifer Carroll Foy, who’s running for a Virginia state legislature seat this fall.
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.
Foy is a graduate of the Virginia Military Institute (VMI) and a public defender. She’s been a foster mom for eight years as well.
She would expand Medicaid in Virginia. She hopes to increase public school teachers’ salaries and reduce class sizes. She would protect Planned Parenthood’s funding. She supports extending the Metro Blue Line into Prince William County. She wants to raise the grand larceny threshold from $200 to $1,000, which should result in fewer people under the age of 18 being convicted of a felony. She would fight climate change.
