Herring for Atty. General

Democrat Mark Herring, who is running for re-election, has been an active and activist attorney general. He has joined with attorneys general from around the country to try to protect Virginians from many of the harsh and unconstitutional policies sought by the Trump administration and the GOP.

He has filed suit to protect reimbursements to the states under the Affordable Care Act, stood up for Dreamers and fought attempts to roll back the ACA’s mandate for coverage of contraceptives.

He has instituted programs to curb gun violence, stop the epidemic of opioid abuse and to protect consumers from out of control banks and corporations.

He believes the attorney general is the people’s lawyer.

Our vote is for Mr. Herring.
