DPVA Statement on the 10th Congressional Debate

by Democratic Party of Virginia

The Democratic Party of Virginia (DPVA) Chairwoman Susan Swecker released the following statement after the conclusion of the 10th Congressional District Debate:

"During this morning's debate, LuAnn Bennett showed that she will stand up and fight for the people of Virginia's 10th Congressional District, unlike her severely partisan opponent. While Barbara Comstock waffled on her stances on education, immigration, and transportation -- LuAnn Bennett continues to prove that she is the only candidate with the courage to tackle the tough issues that affect working families. LuAnn Bennett will work for affordable education, equal pay, child care, and transportation for residents of Virginia's 10th Congressional District because that's what leaders do. Unlike Barbara Comstock, who dodges questions from the press, refuses to say where she stands on Donald Trump, and continues to value partisan ideals over her constituents."
