Press Release :Mark Herring Wins Mt. Vernon Straw Poll

From the Mark Herring for Attorney General campaign: 


Leesburg – In a sign of his campaign’s growing grassroots momentum, Democratic Attorney General candidate State Senator Mark Herring (Loudoun & Fairfax) won tonight’s Mount Vernon District Democratic Committee Straw Poll.

“I want to thank the Mount Vernon Democrats for hosting tonight’s straw poll,” Herring stated.  “I am honored to have the support of so many Fairfax County Democrats.  Fairfax County has been pivotal in electing Democrats to statewide office in Virginia. Our campaign is building momentum for a strong victory in Fairfax County and in Virginia this November.  Virginia Democrats are looking for a candidate with a proven record of fighting for the values we share, and that’s what I’ve done as a member of the State Senate.”

“In my first run for public office, I defied the odds by beating a six-term incumbent Republican mayor who had never lost an election,” Herring stated. “I am confident we will defy the odds again this November when I become the first Democrat in 24 years to be elected Virginia’s Attorney General.”

“Everywhere I go, Virginians tell me they are ready for fundamental change in the Attorney General’s office,” Herring stated. “When I’m Attorney General, I’ll put the law first, not politics, and I’ll use the powers of the office to serve all Virginians. That is a message that is resonating across our Commonwealth.”
