House Democrat Switches Up Political Plans

via Rep. Abigail Spanberger on Youtube

Rep. Abigail Spanberger, a Democrat representing a competitive U.S. House seat in Virginia, has officially announced her candidacy for governor of the state.

“The greatest honor of my life has been to represent Virginians in the U.S. House,” Spanberger began.

“Today, I am proud to announce that I will be working hard to gain the support and trust of all Virginians to continue this service as the next Governor of Virginia.” (Trending: Supreme Court Dismisses Case To Keep Trump Off Ballot)

“Virginia is where I grew up, where I am raising my own family, and where I intend to build a stronger future for the next generation of Virginians,” she added.

Spanberger will not seek re-election in 2024 for her House seat. As a former CIA case officer, she has a history of challenging Democratic leadership and has emphasized her ability to bring people together.

“If we don’t mean we should defund the police, we shouldn’t say that,” she stated previously to other Democrat leaders.

“And so when there are millions upon millions of … and people in our communities are concerned, we need to recognize that that is on us.”

“Despite dangerous polarization, I have found ways to bring people together and focus on what really matters,” she stated of her time in congress.

“But today, we find ourselves at a crossroads. Our country and our Commonwealth are facing fundamental threats to our rights, our freedoms, and to our democracy. While some politicians in Richmond focus on banning abortion and books, what they’re not doing is helping people,” she added.

“I know how to bring people together and get real things done that improve lives.”

“As a former CIA case officer, former federal law enforcement officer, and current Member of Congress, I have always believed in the value of public service. I look forward to serving the Seventh District through the end of this term and then pursuing the important work of bringing Virginia together to keep our Commonwealth strong.”

Her decision could lead to a competitive Democratic primary in the 7th district.

Additionally, speculation surrounds potential gubernatorial candidates, including Richmond Mayor Levar Stoney and Republicans Attorney General Jason Miyares and Lt. Gov. Winsome Earle-Sears.
