Help turn Virginia blue in 2017

Run for Something is currently fundraising for Virginia candidates ahead of the general election this November. Chip in to help them out -- we're counting on you!

Jennifer Carroll Foy, VA-2

As a former Magistrate judicial officer, foster parent, one of the first females to graduate from Virginia Military Institute and a current public defender, Jennifer has the knowledge and experience to find solutions to strengthen our economy, improve education and transportation, reform our criminal justice system, and advance women's rights.

Josh King, VA-2

Josh is an Army combat veteran, a Deputy Sheriff, and the father of three, including a daughter with autism. He ran in 2015 and lost by only 125 votes.

Danica Roem, VA-13

Danica is a 32-year-old step-mom, journalist, and lifelong Manassas resident. She was the lead reporter of the Gainesville Times from 2006-2015, and most recently served as the news editor of the Montgomery County Sentinel from 2015-2016. If elected, Danica would be the first out transgender person ever seated in an American state legislature.

Chris Hurst, VA-12

Chris is a former broadcast journalist and anchor for WDBJ7 (CBS) in Roanoke, Virginia. The on-air murder of his late-girlfriend, fellow journalist Alison Parker, has motivated Chris to run for public office and fight for families in Southwest Virginia. As Delegate, he vows to give a voice to the voiceless, demand support for public education and protect those at-risk to violence and abuse. Chris will be up against Republican Joseph Yost -- flipping this seat matters for winning back the Virginia legislature.

Kellen Squire, VA-58

Kellen is an emergency department nurse from Barboursville, Virginia, running for the Virginia House of Delegates in the 58th District, the seat once held by Thomas Jefferson. He hopes to help build a new generation of leaders to take back the torch of civic engagement and restore the ideals our country was founded on. He is ready to stand up for working Virginians, to fight tirelessly for families, and to ensure that tomorrow brings a promising and prosperous future for his district. Kellen’s race in particular is a fun one: He’s running against Robert Bell, who’s gone uncontested the last two cycles. Rob Bell is as conservative as they come.

Schuyler VanValkenburg, VA-72​

Schuyler is a public school teacher who is running for Delegate to fight for strong public schools, to create 21st Century jobs, and to level the playing field for all citizens. Schuyler is raising his three children in the Lakeside neighborhood in Henrico County, and he teaches government and history at Glen Allen High School. Schuyler’s running for an open seat -- the Republican who’s retiring, Jimmie Massie, has been uncontested the last three cycles.
