Friday afternoon we learned the Virginia Governor’s Association dropped $5 million dollars in our commonwealth–the largest political contribution in the history of our state. The money is meant as a “marker”: a public indication of how much they’re willing to spend to put a conservative in the Governor’s mansion this November. It’s January. That $5M is only going to increase.
This is serious. The General Assembly only began on Wednesday but already we can see what sort of agenda a Republican governor would sign into law in Virginia.
A bathroom bill that not only would discriminate against gender non-conforming Virginians, but also drive business away from our commonwealth.
Radical abortion bans that put politicians in the doctor’s office to judge and shame women.
Need I go on? Everything is on the line in this year’s election. With a Republican-controlled General Assembly, the Governor is our last line of defense for our families and our values.
Republicans have placed their opening bet on this race and it’s a doozy. What are you willing to put in, to stand up to the right-wing this year?
