On Tuesday morning, Ralph Northam, the 73rd Governor of Virginia, announced his support for Eileen Filler-Corn in the race for Virginia’s 10th Congressional District with the following statement:
“Thanks to Eileen-Filler Corn’s leadership as Speaker, we were able to pass common-sense gun violence prevention laws that are already saving lives in Virginia," said Ralph Northam. “We as a Commonwealth, and a nation, cannot stop here. I know Eileen will fight to pass long-overdue legislation in Congress to keep communities in CD10 safer from gun violence.”
“Eileen was also instrumental in improving Virginia’s transportation infrastructure, passing the G3 Program to provide tuition-free community college for students in high-demand fields, protecting access to reproductive healthcare, and so much more,” added Northam. “Eileen will be a bold and effective advocate in Congress and she will continue to deliver for the 10th Congressional District.”
“The residents of CD10, and all Virginians, have greater access to healthcare, quality public education, reproductive liberties, increased protections from gun violence, and much more because of Governor Northam’s transformational leadership,” Eileen Filler-Corn said. “I am honored to have Governor Northam’s support and I look forward to expanding our progress on these issues and more for the 10th Congressional District.”
