DPVA Chairwoman Susan Swecker's statement on Anthony Flaccavento and VA-09

FALLS CHURCH, Va. –Democratic Party of Virginia Chairwoman Susan Swecker issued the following statement thanking Anthony Flaccavento for the great race he ran in VA-09:

“Anthony Flaccavento brought a true farmer’s spirit to this race that resonated with Virginians across the Fightin’ Ninth. Pundits said a Democrat couldn’t run a strong race in Southwest Virginia, yet that is exactly what Anthony did this year. By not only doubling Morgan Griffith’s fundraising in this race but also hosting over 100 town halls, Anthony spread the Democratic message of hope and change across Southwest Virginia. His valiant effort will only further propel Democrats in rural Virginia for years to come.”
