​​DPVA Statement on the 5th Congressional District Debate

by Democratic Party of Virginia

The Democratic Party of Virginia (DPVA) Chairwoman Susan Swecker issued the following statement regarding Jane Dittmar’s victory in the 5th Congressional Debate:

“I want to congratulate Jane Dittmar on another impressive performance in last night’s 5th congressional district debate. While her opponent continues to shamelessly support Donald Trump, who boasts about sexual assault, Jane is committed to ensuring that such vulgarity, or support of it, has no place in the halls of Capitol Hill nor in the White House.

“Tom Garrett echoes Donald Trump’s divisive rhetoric and extreme positions. Jane Dittmar is a model for a changing Commonwealth and she's laser-focused on creating economic opportunity for all. Jane won last night’s debate and it’s clear that her message is resonating with Virginia voters.”
