ALL UNASSEMBLED CAUCUSES EXCEPT FOR THE STERLING DISTRICT HAVE BEEN CANCELED. SEE BELOW.

LOUDOUN, VA – The deadline for filing to be considered for the Democratic nomination for Loudoun County Supervisor, Commonwealth Attorney, Treasurer, Sheriff, Clerk of Court and Commissioner of Revenue expired today at 5:00PM. The deadlines to file for the VA House of Delegates nominations in the 32nd, 33rd, 34th, 86th and 87th Loudoun districts expired as well, as did the deadline for VA State Senate nominations in the 13th, 31st, and 33rd Districts. The filing deadline for the House of Delegates nomination in the 10th district is May 15th.

Only one race drew multiple candidates. In Sterling, Koran Saines, Tony Barney, and Bahri Aliriza all filed to vie for the Sterling District Supervisor Democratic Nomination. The Loudoun County Democratic Committee will hold an Unassembled Caucus on May 2nd, 2015, between 12 PM and 4PM at the Sterling Community Center, 120 Enterprise St, Sterling, VA. The Unassembled Caucus will draw registered voters who want change in Sterling to cast their ballots for their preferred candidate, similar to a typical primary. The candidate with the most votes will become the Democratic nominee, and will be ready to take on Republican Eugene Delgaudio in the general election.

LCDC Chair Val Suzdak praised the roster of Democratic nominees. “This is the strongest, most dedicated, and most virtuous group of candidates I’ve seen since I’ve lived here in Loudoun County. With Senators Jennifer Wexton and Barbara Favola leading the way, 2015 has the potential to be the year that we turn Loudoun solid blue.” Commenting on the nomination contest in Sterling, Suzdak says, “Eugene Delgaudio should be worried. The nominee that emerges from this Caucus will have a wave of support behind them. All of our candidates have indicated that they will be ready to work side by side with the eventual winner, and we look forward to May 2nd when Sterling’s candidate joins our slate of nominees.”
The Call to Caucus for the Sterling District is attached.
