DPVA Statement on the Final 5th Congressional District Debate

by Democratic Party of Virginia

The Democratic Party of Virginia (DPVA) Chairwoman Susan Swecker released the following statement after the conclusion of the final debate in Virginia's 5th Congressional District:

"Like the previous debates, Jane Dittmar won the debate by presenting a vision for moving the district forward. Jane continues to champion commonsense solutions for the tough issues facing our Commonwealth. She's laser-focused on bringing good-paying jobs to the district - and that's exactly what we need to tackle in a dysfunctional Congress.

"Tom Garrett would contribute to the dysfunction and obstruction in Congress. While Jane Dittmar would deliver real results for Virginians, Garrett would aggressively push back against any opportunity to move our Commonwealth forward. Once again, Jane proved that she is the best candidate to represent the people of Virginia's 5th Congressional District, and in these last two weeks that message will resonate with voters."
