Arlington, Virginia—Just one week after 1.5 million Virginia children received the child care tax credit, President Biden will campaign with Democratic candidate for Governor, Terry McAuliffe, to tout their plans to lift up hardworking families in our community. This event will be an opportunity for the President and former Governor to talk about their plans to ensure that everyone in Virginia and across the country has the resources they need to thrive.
“People in our community want to be able to work hard at our jobs, take care of our families, and have stable financial futures so we can accomplish our goals. But Republicans like Glenn Youngkin, Winsome Sears, and Jason Miyares are working with huge corporations and their greedy CEOs to put corporate profits over what our families need,” Ashleigh Crocker, Communications Director at Progress Virginia, said. “We need leaders like Terry McAuliffe who will partner with President Biden to lift up working families by increasing the minimum wage, passing paid family and medical leave, and ensuring that working families have access to child care so they can do their jobs without worrying about their kids. This election season, we will come together to ensure that all of us can earn a good living and have a good life regardless of our race, gender identity, immigration status, zip code or income level by voting for Terry McAuliffe, Hala Ayala, and Mark Herring.”
