DC Blue Wave March 27th Fundraiser for Joshua Cole and Dan Helmer at Comet Ping Pong

Goal thermometer

Please join DC Blue Wave and friends at Comet Ping Pong on March 27th to support Joshua Cole and Dan Helmer. Both are candidates running THIS year to unseat incumbent republicans.


In 2017 Joshua Cole lost his race for House of Delegates in the 28thDistrict by only 73 votes. But in 2018 Senator Tim Kaine turned both Stafford and Fredericksburg blue! 

Joshua's District has been targeted as one of the most flip-able seats in Virginia this year! They need your help to turn the Virginia General Assembly BLUE so that we can pass meaningful legislation: Ratifying the ERA, Affordable Housing, Traffic Congestion, Minimum Wage Increase and Supporting Unions.


Dan Helmer is the Democratic nominee for Virginia’s House of Delegates in the 40th District. Currently a Lieutenant Colonel in the U.S. Army Reserve, Dan served tours in Iraq and Afghanistan after graduating from West Point. While on active duty he earned a Rhodes Scholarship. After leaving active duty service Dan began working as a consultant in the private sector, where he is now a partner in a Virginia-based small business that helps the government, non-profits, and businesses solve some of their most difficult problems. Dan also serves as the vice-Chair of Vote Vets.


Dan will work tirelessly for commonsense legislation that serves our community and makes it livable and safe: He will support teacher pay raises; he will take on the outside influence of Dominion Energy in Richmond; and he will protect Medicaid Expansion, which delivers healthcare for the first time to hundreds of thousands of Virginians, including tens of thousands of military veterans. Dan will also fight for a fair redistricting process and to ensure the women he served side-by-side with in Iraq and Afghanistan have equal rights guaranteed through ratification of the Equal Rights Amendment.


Please buy your ticket, contribute as much as you can, and come join us on March 27th from 8-10 to support these incredible candidates. Be sure to RSVP to our Facebook Page for updates and discussion!
