Del. Mark H. Levine (D-Alexandria) is yet another candidate for Lt. Governor in 2021.
If Levine were to win he would be the first openly gay person to be elected statewide and also the first Jewish person to be elected statewide.
As all Democrats say, but rarely do, Levine has promised to reach across the aisle particularly on the issues of economic opportunity and domestic violence.
From the Washingtonpost.com,
“Injustice really gets under my skin,” Levine said in a written statement ahead of his announcement. “All our lives we’ve been told ‘that’s just the way things are.’ But I’ve found — if you’re persistent and creative, get the details right, and work with others of good will — even the toughest problems can be solved.”
