TURNER for Delegate!

Good afternoon, everyone!  I'm extremely proud to report that, earlier today (Monday, July 27), Carter Turner announced his Democratic candidacy for the 8th House of Delegates district seat that includes all of the City of Salem and much of Roanoke County.

Ginny Weisz announced her Democratic candidacy for this same seat last month, but later determined that her dedication to rural health care and the need to complete her doctoral studies would not allow her to campaign effectively for this important elected office.

Therefore, Ginny withdrew her candidacy last week and endorsed Carter Turner at this afternoon's news conference at the Roanoke County courthouse in downtown Salem.

Please go to Carter's website; on these local news links about his announcement:

...and then do all that you can to help Carter Turner win in November and bring the Virginia General Assembly back to sound Democratic management.

Updated/Extended RT Coverage of Turner for Delegate
Thanks for promoting this diary to the BC front page, "kindler"; taking on the House of Delegates Republican majority leader is no small job, but Carter Turner is certainly up to the task.

Here's the link to today's (Tuesday, July 28) extended coverage of Carter Turner's 8th HOD district Democratic candidacy by the Roanoke Times:

Please stay tuned...

Thanks again!
