Herring_main9/2/15: Read candidate’s statement HERE.
(In response to Attorney General Mark Herring’s announcement that he is seeking re-election in 2017, Democratic Party of Virginia Chairwoman Susan Swecker released the following statement:
“I am so proud that Mark Herring is ready to build upon the progress he’s made as Attorney General and is seeking the office for a second term. There’s so much at stake in the next election; after all, Virginians haven’t forgotten the disastrous results of an Attorney General’s office controlled by Republicans for two decades. It wasn’t so long ago that Ken Cuccinelli brought his right-wing ideology to the job by bullying the state Board of Heath, harassing a scientist at UVA, and leading a failed Affordable Care Act suit. Mark has shown a completely different approach to being Attorney General – one that prioritizes the law and the people of Virginia. I welcome his decision to run for re-election and look forward to continuing the great work he’s done for the Commonwealth.”)

Statement on Hate Crime in South Carolina


LOUDOUN, VA – Loudoun County Democratic Committee Chairwoman Valerie Suzdak has released the following statement on the tragic shooting in Charleston, South Carolina.

“On behalf of the Loudoun County Democratic Committee, I offer sincere condolences to the families of the victims of the hate crime in South Carolina. We also extend our solidarity with the Emanuel African Methodist Episcopal Church community, which is grieving the loss of the SC State Senator Clementa Pinckney, Reverend Sharonda Coleman-Singleton, and 7 other victims of the tragic mass shooting at the church last night.”

“The gravity of this is deep and complicated. The Emanuel AME Church held a significant role in both the abolition movement and the civil rights movement. The church was involved in planning an uprising in 1822 to liberate people held in slavery, and after the June 17th uprising was thwarted, the church was burned. That this church was targeted on this date was no accident, and it requires us to reflect on how and why this kind of violence continues to plague our society.”
