VA-7 Abigail Spanberger wins Democratic primary (73%-27%)

Abigail Spanberger easily defeats Dan Ward in 7th District Democratic primary

http://www.richmond.com/news/virginia/government-politics/abigail-spanberger-easily-defeats-dan-ward-in-th-district-democratic/article_8fb56fc7-89da-54b6-92b0-6274ed458f3f.html

Former CIA officer Abigail Spanberger beat former Marine pilot Dan Ward in a primary election Tuesday to become the Democratic nominee this fall against Rep. Dave Brat, R-7th, in a district that the national party has targeted for flipping.

Ward issued a concession statement saying he had full confidence that Spanberger "has what it takes to beat Dave Brat in November and will make a great Congressperson."

Spanberger grew up in Henrico County and worked as a federal postal inspector before her 8 1/2-year CIA career, where she worked in Washington, Europe and the West Coast.

While the Spanberger supporters gathered in a hotel ballroom, Ward's backers gathered at his farm in Orange County with a keg of beer.

1. It would be wonderful to actually have a representative

In Congress!

I have called Brats office over and over without any impact.

Id really love to have someone in Congress who represents people like me.

Congratulations Ms. Spanberger!
