DPVA Statement on the First Presidential Debate

by Democratic Party of Virginia

The Democratic Party of Virginia (DPVA) Chairwoman Susan Swecker released the following statement after the first Presidential debate between Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump:

"During tonight's debate, Hillary Clinton demonstrated that she's fighting for us, and Donald Trump demonstrated that he's only looking out for himself.  Like countless times before, Trump proved that his temperament is best suited for reality television -- not the Oval Office.

"Hillary is the most qualified candidate to be president and build upon President Obama’s legacy. When Hillary was laying out her plans to grow the economy and keep us safe, Trump was proving that his ignorance and divisiveness have no bounds. When Hillary explained her promising vision for the future of America, Trump revealed a troubling glimpse into his view of America -- an America that turns back the clock on progress. It was clear tonight that Hillary Clinton has the experience and steadiness to serve as Commander in Chief and work toward a brighter future for all Americans.”
