RICHMOND — DPVA Chair Delegate Charniele Herring’s Statement on today’s Primary Election results and the newly elected Democratic ticket: “Virginians are lucky to have Terry McAuliffe, Senator Ralph Northam, and Senator Mark Herring to elect this November,” said DPVA Chair Delegate Charniele Herring. “Their focus on expanding jobs and the economy, fixing Virginia’s transportation crisis, and increased access to affordable education couldn’t be more opposite of the extreme ideological agenda and rhetoric of the Cuccinelli, Jackson, Obenshain ticket.
“Virginians had a difficult decision to make today with four exceptional candidates on the ballot. Senator Ralph Northam and Senator Mark Herring ran strong campaigns based on the values we all share. Both of them have bright futures as leaders in our party and our Commonwealth; they deserve our thanks for their commitment to the Virginia families we all serve.”
“We look forward to November and will work day in and day out to ensure a Democratic victory.”
