Campaign Update: over $100k raised; vote absentee; campaign kickoff!

Friends –

First, a BIG thank you to everyone who generously made a financial investment in our campaign. We had a stellar month of fundraising, which would not have been possible without the help of so many of you (specifically, 216 of you). Click here for more specifics on that.

Second, absentee and in-person voting has begun. As I mentioned in my last campaign update, I have a primary election on Tuesday, August 23 (mark your calendars). Any registered voter who lives in the new 36th Senate district is eligible to vote, and if you’ll be unable to get to your local polling place on 8/23, you can vote absentee or in-person as of July 8 (a week ago). Get details here.

Third, we’re having our campaign kick off on July 30. Details here.

Now, a campaign update.

It’s been going really, really well. Every day I’m out knocking on doors and becoming better acquainted with the hard working families I hope to represent in the Virginia Senate.

And, being out (even in this heat) has its benefits. I’ve lost about 10 pounds and have a great (farmer’s) tan.

But seriously, this race is about putting people before politics, and having the opportunity to hear the challenges and triumphs of the people of the 36th district first-hand is invaluable. As I did during my time in the House of Delegates, I look forward to working day and night to improve their quality of life as it pertains to state government -– and to do my part to make Virginia a better place to live, work and raise a family.

Thanks to all who have taken the time to speak to us when we’ve come by (especially to those who have offered us a soda or bottle of water). We’ve hit a few thousand doors, and our pace continues to accelerate.

We had a fantastic time and turnout at the Dale City Independence Day Parade on the 4th of July. I really appreciate all those who took the time to march with us – it was a great way to celebrate our nation’s independence and introduce new people to our campaign (we distributed over a thousand lapel stickers to folks in the crowd who wore them around the rest of the day). We’ve posted photos on our Facebook page (please “like” us if you haven’t already).

I continue to be amazed and humbled by the incredible grassroots momentum our campaign has attracted. I’m particularly grateful for the prayers, but God-willing we win on August 23 and later on November 8, it will be a victory won by all those who have volunteered; contributed; those who have put a bumper sticker on their car or a sign in their yard; had an event for us; talked to friends and neighbors about our campaign; or done something else that gets us one step closer to ending politics as usual in Virginia.

The only endorsements that really count in this campaign are those made at the ballot box, but I’m proud to count community leaders like my new delegate, Scott Lingamfelter as among my strongest supporters – along with Mark Cole in Stafford, Corey Stewart (a resident of the 36th district) in Prince William, Tom Davis and Chris Braunlich in Fairfax, and Jamie Radtke, among thousands of others.

I’m sure some of those folks will be in attendance at our campaign kick-off on July 30. I hope you will be there too. More info on that here.

Thank you again for all you are doing, and I look forward to being in touch in the days and weeks ahead.


P.S. While we had a great month of fundraising in June, we’ve only raised about one-tenth of what we need to implement our plan between now and November 8. Will you consider making a financial contribution? It’s quick, easy, and you can do it from anywhere. Plus, Virginia law allows both personal and corporate contributions in any amount.

Inflation rising. Unemployment rising. Taxes rising. And now, gas prices rising. Is Biden the sequel to Carter?
