Virginia Conlon is one of 3 Democratic candidates running in tomorrow's primary election for NC-13, a seat currently held by Republican George Holding, a former U.S Attorney who achieved notoriety as the prosecutor of John Edwards.

Virginia's video is real. Just Virginia speaking to voters. You have to admire a citizen who will take the time to get out there and fight this way. We need a House full of them.
So good luck, Virginia! And here's more video:
