DPVA Statement on the Final Presidential Debate

by Democratic Party of Virginia

The Democratic Party of Virginia (DPVA) Chairwoman Susan Swecker released the following statement after the final Presidential debate between Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump:
“Every aspect of Donald Trump’s agenda and rhetoric have concerned millions of Virginians and Americans, and tonight only doubled those fears. Trump spewed lies and hateful rhetoric on the debate stage with no one in mind but himself. He lacks the basic tenets required of a president: the judgement, restraint, and knowledge to address the issues that face our nation.
"The sobering truth is that there has never been a person more unsuited for the Oval Office than Donald Trump. Hillary is the only candidate to offer a forward-thinking vision for America’s future, and she is the only one suited to carry out that vision. Tonight, Hillary proved once again that she is in this for us and we take solace in her readiness and pledge to fight for each and every American. Hillary Clinton is ready to serve as Commander-in-Chief and work toward a brighter future for all Americans and Virginians are ready to send her and Tim Kaine to the White House.”
