VA SD35 Phonebank
Tuesday, June 11th is primary day in Virginia. Lately less than 25,000 voters actually vote; voters in this district need an extra nudge and reminder that this primary is historic in so many ways.
This is an environmental justice primary between Dick Saslaw, 44 year incumbent ,and Yasmine Taeb. The differences between the two candidate is stark and while Dick Saslaw has represented the Senate district for more than 40 years, he is relatively unknown to his constituents.
Virginia is currently fighting both the Atlantic Coast Pipeline and the Mountain Valley Pipeline; Senator Saslaw is a strong supporter of both and worked to push these pipelines through Air and Water Board hearings. The NAACP, Virginia Poor People's Campaign, Food and Water Watch and many other environmental partners have been fighting these pipelines.
