Statement by MoveOn Executive Director Rahna Epting on the election of the governor of Virginia


In response to the election results in the race for Governor of Virginia, MoveOn Executive Director Rahna Epting released the following statement:

“Trump’s politics, cruelty and division are very much alive and well. The election results in Virginia are a wake-up call for all Americans who believe in a future where every family can thrive and serve as a fire alarm for Democrats in Washington. Virginia has elected a governor who pampers white supremacists, denies basic facts, and denigrates the fundamental principles of American democracy itself. Our country is at a critical crossroads: will we slide down the path of authoritarianism or will we defend democracy, equity and progress?

“Unless the Democrats in Washington can deliver on their promises to millions of working families, they are calling on the broad, multiracial coalition of voters that brought them to power to stay home. Voters seek answers from our elected leaders and bold investments in our communities to fight the climate crisis, address corporate greed, and build an America where the economy can work for all. Time is running out for Democrats to learn from now and join together to pass the Build Back Better Act and the bipartisan infrastructure deal. ”
