DPVA Chairwoman Statement on VA-04 Primary Results

by Democratic Party of Virginia

Democratic Party of Virginia (DPVA) Chairwoman Susan Swecker released the following statement on Donald McEachin's primary win in Virginia's 4th Congressional District: 

"I'd like to congratulate Senator Donald McEachin on his win in Virginia's 4th Congressional District primary. Senator McEachin is a proven leader who fights for all Virginians, and we look forward to calling Senator McEachin 'Congressman' McEachin in the near future.

"The new Congressional boundaries represent a historic step forward in ending the injustice that racial gerrymandering inflicts upon those whose voices it silences. With the new boundaries, Democrats are heavily favored to double Virginia's African American members - which will grant Virginia voters stronger representation in Congress."
