Run for Something 2017 candidates

Run for Something is currently fundraising for four Virginia candidates ahead of the Virginia primary on June 13th.

These four were chosen because they’ve met the criteria established by the RFS team by hitting the fundraising threshold necessary to be eligible for our matching funds.

We’re proud of these candidates! They’re doing the important work of building campaigns, engaging volunteers, and talking to voters about progressive issues on the local level.

Chip in to help them out -- we're counting on you!
