Next year a progressive, liberal, Democrat from Ashburn, Kyle Green, will challenge incumbent Senator Dick Black in the 13th district. Green is a former marine, as is Dick Black. Green is running on a typical progressive platform. From Loudounnow.com,
Green said he would run on a progressive Democratic platform that includes refusing money from corporate PACs, supporting school funding, enacting gun safety legislation, protecting the environment, adopting comprehensive criminal justice reform, and raising the minimum wage.
Yawn. How many times have we heard this from progressives?
Conservative Senator Dick Black has held the seat since 2011. He was a marine in Vietnam and spent his career as an Army JAG officer. He has already raised $335,314 for next year’s race. Black is our most reliable conservative senator in Richmond. He has never voted for a tax increase and he never will. Senator Black is Catholic and solidly pro-life. He loves his community as evidenced by excellent constituent services. The 13th Senate district will never have a better representative than Senator Dick Black. The last thing we need is a progressive Democrat.
