Virginia 9th Congressional District Democratic Committee Selects Primary for 2018
October 19, 2017 – Congressional District members exercised their responsibility per Virginia Code and Democratic Party of Virginia Party Plan by selecting a primary as the method of nomination for the 9th District Democratic candidate for the US House of Representatives in 2018. With one abstention, members were unanimous in their enthusiasm for all the positive aspects of a primary election to build a campaign to elect our Democratic nominee to Congress. Already two candidates have officially filed for the 9th District Democratic nomination, and more have indicated their interest in running. The citizens of the 9th District deserve a Congressman or Congresswoman who will actually represent us, and in the coming year we’ll see our Democratic candidates meeting with everyone in their travels across this district the size of New Jersey.
In the remaining days of this very important election year we are 100% committed to and focused on electing our state-wide ticket with Ralph Northam, Justin Fairfax, and Mark Herring along with our House candidates, as well as Democratic candidates for local offices in the 29 jurisdictions of the 9th District.
