The Virginia elections are critical not just because continued control of the VA General Assembly is at stake, but also because they will be closely watched as a sign of both parties’ strengths and weaknesses heading into the midterms in 2022.
For the second “off-year” cycle in a row, WNDC will be joined by Congressman Jim Moran, former mayor of Alexandria and US Representative for Virginia’s 8th Congressional district from 1991 until 2015. He will analyze the results of the Virginia election, walking us through the why-they-won and why-they-lost, and what this means for both state and national politics.
Bar opens at 5:30 pm, Zoom program begins at 6 pm.
Congressman Moran was a leader on the Appropriations Committee, bringing billions in economic investment to Northern Virginia to assist underserved communities, build up the region’s transportation infrastructure and create thousands of jobs, particularly in the defense and intelligence communities. A vocal, active champion for progressive policies, he was one of the very few who opposed the Defense of Marriage Act in the early 1990’s before it was politically popular to do so and championed eliminating the discriminatory “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell” policy in the military. He has strongly supported a woman’s reproductive rights throughout his career, and is a staunch supporter of stronger gun safety laws.
