The Latino community cannot lose focus, which is to say that we must win this fight for our families and our future. As we push this election over the line in these last few days, we are focused on creating a culture of permanent voting, not only for this election but the many future ones to come.
With four days until the election, our canvassers and volunteers are giving their all on the doors and on the phones. We have used every tool within reach to talk to Latino and immigrant voters in Virginia about why Dr. Northam is the best candidate for Governor. Dr. Northam understands that we are stronger together, and that there’s too much at stake to waste time pitting Americans against one another. On Tuesday, voters will decide the future of the Commonwealth, and we know they will choose union and prosperity.
We are doing everything we can to turn out voters in Virginia and to send a clear message to Ed Gillespie that hateful rhetoric and race-baiting tactics do not work in Virginia and will not work anywhere in this county. With four days to go, we will organize, mobilize, and elect Ralph Northam, Justin Fairfax, Mark Herring, and Democrats up and down the ticket to deliver a positive vision for every Virginian.
It’s crunch time in Virginia. The Virginia GOP and Ed Gillespie have run one of the most vile and anti-immigrant campaigns that we have ever seen in the commonwealth. As a Virginian, I am appalled by the vitriol and dog whistles that have been used to demonize our hard-working immigrant community. The pool of candidates running for the House of Delegates this year – among them Elizabeth Guzman, Kathy Tran, Hala Ayala, Jennifer Carroll Foy, and Danica Roem – prove that diversity does make us stronger. It is time to turn that hate into political power and go out on November 7th to send a clear message that Virginia has no place for these horrible tactics.
