Virginia 2021: Meet our Democratic candidates

We’re hosting a series of Zoom meet-and-greets with Democratic candidates for statewide office in the 2021 Virginia elections, co-sp0nsored with Williamsburg Indivisible Group and Peninsula Indivisible.

2021 is a big year in Virginia politics, with many candidates already running for the Democratic nominations for Governor, Lieutenant Governor and Attorney General. With so many contenders, we want to be sure to give you a chance to meet them all and hear what they have to say.

We’re starting the series with Sam Rasoul, the Roanoake Delegate who has announced for Lieutenant Governor, in early December.

Please note: WJCC Democrats are prohibited by the Virginia Democratic Party Plan from endorsing candidates in contested primaries, so we won’t be taking a position, but we will do everything we can to help you learn about them all. Our co-sponsors have also agreed not to endorse before the state primary in June.

Joe Biden for President

Elected to the U.S. Senate at the age of 29, Joe Biden has spent his life in public service. Now he will be the Democratic candidate for President.

His vision:

We are in a battle for the soul of America.

It’s time to remember who we are. We’re Americans: tough and resilient. We choose hope over fear. Science over fiction. Truth over lies. And unity over division. We treat each other with dignity, we leave nobody behind, and we give hate no safe harbor.

We are the United States of America. And together, there is not a single thing we cannot do.

Mark Warner for Senate

Mark Warner is running for his third term in the U.S. Senate.

Mark Warner brought thousands of new jobs to Virginia as governor, while turning budget deficits into surpluses.

In the Senate, he’s fought to make healthcare more affordable, protect coverage for people with pre-existing medical conditions, and to create an economy that works for all Virginians.
