Second stop: I’m in Richmond, where @debrarodmanva’s race for Virginia state senator is one of the tightest in the state. She’s running against a candidate whose record is abysmal, but who‘s pretending to be a gun sense champion in order to siphon votes. #valeg

.@debrarodmanva ran for the Virginia House of Delegates for the 73rd district and beat a Republican incumbent. Now this gun sense champion is running for state senate. Watch her ad here:  #valeg

.@debrarodmanva’s Republican opponent has an A-rating from the @NRA, takes NRA money, and has been endorsed by the NRA. But she also had the gall to run a TV ad in which she pretended to support gun safety laws. She even called herself a “mom who demands action.” 😒 #VALEG

.@JennMcClellanVA is a gun sense champion and state senator who’s up for re-election in Virginia. She serves as Vice Chair of the Virginia Legislative Black Caucus, and is a member of the Rural Caucus and Women’s Health Care Caucus. #valeg

We also have to re-elect Delegates @JeffBourneVA and @VVforDelegate and elect @RodforDelegate to the House, too. #valeg

Now these amazing Richmond/Henrico @MomsDemand volunteers are going out to knock doors for @debrarodmanva, @JennMcClellanVA, @JeffBourneVA, @VVforDelegate and @RodforDelegate. Because when lawmakers beholden to the @NRA back down, @MomsDemand volunteers double down. #VALEG
