I need your help to keep Virginia blue
When I was serving in the Army, treating wounded soldiers during Desert Storm, I never once had a patient stop me before a medical procedure to ask if I was a Democrat or Republican. And I never asked them. It didn't matter -- we were all in it together.
I look at government the same way. When our elected officials work together for the common good, it lifts us all up.
In Virginia, we got a lot done by putting the people we serve ahead of politics. We came together on a bipartisan proposal to ban smoking in Virginia restaurants -- it wasn't easy, but as a doctor, I know it was a meaningful victory for public health. And we worked together to expand health care and benefits for veterans, and take on the crisis of veteran homelessness.
I'm proud of what we've accomplished, but I know there's still more we can do to make sure no Virginian gets left behind. That's why I'm running for Governor -- to keep giving back.
There isn't much time left in this election -- less than a hundred days. I need your help to win in November so we can keep moving forward in Virginia. Join my campaign today, and let me know I can count on you:
