From Here to Virginia Beach

Local activists canvass to educate voters and get them to the polls.

Arlington Democrats teamed up with We of Action Virginia (WofVA), Virginia Democracy Forward (VADF) and other grassroots groups to travel to Virginia Beach to canvass for Elaine Luria who is running for Congress in District 2. As a 20-year Navy vet and small business owner, Luria is in a highly competitive race against incumbent Scott Taylor, a Republican.

About seven Arlingtonians, two McLean residents, three other Northern Virginia residents, and a D.C. resident drove down to Virginia Beach on Saturday morning, Sept. 8, to spend two days canvassing for Luria, hoping to catch some beach time, but experiencing heavy rains and thunderstorms instead. The Luria campaign office was a hive of activity, including a visit with First Lady Pam Northam on Sunday. For more information, see: and
