DPVA STATEMENT ON NOMINATION OF FREEDOM CAUCUS HOPEFUL DENVER RIGGLEMAN IN VA-05
RICHMOND, VA – The Democratic Party of Virginia, through Communications Director Jake Rubenstein, released the following statement on the chaotic nomination of House Freedom Caucus hopeful Denver Riggleman to face off against Leslie Cockburn in Virginia's 5th Congressional District.
"House Freedom Caucus hopeful Denver Riggleman compromised and cut enough deals to win the congressional nomination of a deeply damaged, divided, and chaotic Republican Party. Leslie Cockburn has been traveling the district for almost a year, meeting voters where they are. Leslie's values are in line with the needs and wants of 5th District voters. Leslie will be loyal to them in Congress, not to backroom promises or the House Freedom Caucus."
