The Democratic Party of Virginia (DPVA) Chairwoman Susan Swecker released the following statement after the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee (DCCC) designated Jane Dittmar's race in Virginia's 5th Congressional District as a top Democratic pick-up opportunity under the Red to Blue program:
"I want to congratulate Jane Dittmar and her campaign for being recognized as a top Democratic pick-up opportunity under the DCCC's Red to Blue program. Jane will fight on behalf of middle-class families every day in Virginia's 5th Congressional District and her message is clearly resonating with Virginia voters. While her opponent Tom Garrett echoes Donald Trump's divisive rhetoric and extreme position on immigration, Jane is laser-focused on policies that encourage economic opportunity for all - not just a select few.
"The Red to Blue designation demonstrates that Virginia Democrats are competitive in rural-leaning districts, and we will continue to expand our base with a powerful message of economic opportunity."
