On May 9th, Judy Feder and I debated the critical issues concerning our nation and VA-10 .  I urge all interested Democrats to view the debate videos and compare our positions on Iraq, housing, health care and transportation, among others. Look at how we convey our messages, and evaluate who is better prepared to serve as your Representative in Congress.  

Before you vote in the Primary on June 10th, think about which candidate is best prepared to unseat Frank Wolf with a strategy like Jim Webb's. Think about which candidate is best prepared to represent you in Congress with an inspiring vision of the future. Think about which candidate has shared with you his detailed plans for resolving our domestic and international crises. Think about which candidate has the experience to get legislation passed by building coalitions and negotiating with your interests in mind.

I think you'll agree that in order to beat Frank Wolf in November, the Democratic Party is going to need a candidate who exhibits all of the above traits, demonstrates substantive leadership, and who can appeal to voters across the entire 10th District, from McLean to Winchester.

If you believe, as I do, that this will be the year when Democrats earn a nationwide victory even greater than the "Republican Revolution of 1994", and will turn Virginia, including the 10th Congressional District, blue, then please donate $28 or more (Yes, 28 years of Wolf is Enough) to my campaign at

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
