Just a year after losing the Congressional race in Virginia’s 11th district, Jeff Dove has announced a run in the 10th district in 2020. He will be challenging the current Congresswoman Jennifer Wexton, the nationwide darling of the transgender community. In 2018 Dove garnered just 27% of the vote against longtime Congressman Gerry Connolly.
From the Washington Post:
“After last year I realized I still had a lot of unfinished business,” Dove said. “My message resonated across the country.”
He said he plans to talk about infrastructure, immigration, cybersecurity and education during his campaign. He said he will also continue advocating for adding multifactor authentication to transactions using Social Security numbers to help prevent identity theft.
Although Dove can run for Congress in the 10th district while living in the 11th district, he says he will move his family from their current home in Woodbridge to somewhere in the 10th district.
