Congratulations to Jeremy McPike for winning the Democratic nomination for the Virginia Senate 29th district.
Democrats Challenge Republican Incumbents for Local House of Delegates Seats
The MMPCDC is pleased to announce that two progressive Democratic candidates, Don Shaw and Kyle McCullough, have qualified to oppose local Republican incumbents Bob Marshall (House District 13) and Jackson Miller (House District 50), respectively, on the November 3, 2015 general election ballot.
According to the blog Blue Virginia, the 13th and 50th Virginia House of Delegates Districts both narrowly favor Democrats over Republicans, based on the vote tallies in the 2013 race for Virginia Attorney General, which was nearly tied statewide.
Since no opposing candidates had filed for the Democratic nomination for these races by the deadlines for any Democratic primary or caucus, both Shaw and McCullough were nominated as Democratic candidates for the November 3rd general election without any Democratic primary or caucus.
House District 13 includes all of Manassas Park plus all or part of 11 election precincts in Prince William County, mostly to the west and north of Manassas Park, except for the surrounding Parkside Precinct and the Signal Hill Precinct to the southeast.
House District 50 includes all five election precincts within the City of Manassas plus all or part of 7 election precincts within Prince William County just west or northwest of Manassas City.
Don Shaw, who is challenging Bob Marshall, is a 20-year Army and Air Force veteran, a former Department of Defense employee, and now works for a veteran-owned small business. Don first moved to Prince William in 1997. Don and his wife, Joyce, live in Gainesville with their three children, all of whom have either graduated from or attend Prince William County Public Schools. Facebook Twitter
Kyle McCullough, who is opposing Jackson Miller, lives in Manassas City with his wife, Lina, and two teenage sons and works as a senior programmer at the American Type Culture Collections (ATCC) in Manassas. Facebook
The MMPCDC will work hard over the next six months to get Don and Kyle elected. We encourage local Democrats to donate to and volunteer for Don’s and Kyle’s campaigns. Please use the links above to learn more about these candidates and to contract their campaigns.
