Bennett Kicks Off Campaign for Congress

U.S. House of Representatives 10th District challenger Luann Bennett formally kicked off her campaign Wednesday with an event held at The Bungalow Lakehouse Restaurant in Sterling.

“The 10th District deserves a congressperson who reflects its values,” Bennett said, mentioning women’s choice, immigration, environmental protection, gun law reform, and the need for a  “cradle-to-grave education strategy in this country, so nobody is left behind ever again.”

Bell (D-87) and Mark D. Sickles (D-43), and Loudoun Supervisors Koran T. Saines (D-Sterling) and Kristen C. Umstattd (D-Leesburg), among others.

Bennett hopes to unseat Barbara Comstock in a district the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee has identified as one of sixteen “Red to Blue” races, which Democrats are targeting for a party change.

“It’s ‘welcome to battleground Loudoun,”” Herring said. “This is a battleground county, in a battleground state, in a really big year.”

    Interesting, don’t you think. That some in the republican side of the world, as in, apparently those like Tom Dunn, cannot stand democracy, or Kevin Wright. And, Ol’, we are still waiting for what you promised: The REAL republican candidate for Leesburg mayor.
