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 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.


About fmr. Gov. Terry McAuliffe:

In November 2013, Terry McAuliffe was elected the 72nd Governor of Virginia. As Governor, McAuliffe focused on equality for all Virginians, enhancing quality of life, and building a new diversified economy that made economic opportunity a right, not a privilege. McAuliffe's administration also made strides reducing unemployment, protecting women's access to health care, investing in public education, and rebuilding the Commonwealth's infrastructure.


In politics and business, McAuliffe has worked with people from all walks of life and different political backgrounds. He entered national politics at the age of 23 as the national finance director for President Jimmy Carter. He was elected Democratic National Committee chairman in 2000 and served until 2005. He co-chaired President Bill Clinton's 1996 campaign for reelection and his 1997 Presidential Inauguration. He also served as chairman of the 2000 Democratic National Convention, chairman of Hillary Clinton's 2008 Presidential Campaign and Chairman of the National Governors Association.
