What a great week! First it started with the endorsement of State Rep. Phyllis Kenney! Rep. Kenney has been fighting hard for the people of Washington since 1998 and has consistently delivered results. I am honored by her endorsement of our campaign! In addition this week we were endorsed by the International Union Painters and Allied Trades union DC 5! They represent many hard working folks in our district and I am humbled to have their support. Yesterday we had a great doorbelling party! Members from APACE, SEIU and Team Virk were out in full force talking to voters! | read more »
