“REPRO Rising Virginia enthusiastically endorses Natalie Shorter in her campaign to represent House District 19. Without the guardrails of Roe, Reproductive Freedom in Virginia will come down to the 2023 legislative elections. We’ve seen attacks on both the state and local levels, and they will not stop coming unless we stop them. There is no doubt that Natalie is the candidate who will join us in leading the charge forward to protect and expand access to Reproductive Freedom in the Commonwealth,” said Tarina Keene, executive director of REPRO Rising Virginia.
In her endorsement statement, Senator Howell said: “I have known Natalie and her family for over 30 years while serving alongside Senator Lucas. She’ll bring her background in business and finance to best serve the people of Prince William and Fairfax Counties. I am proud to endorse her for the House of Delegates District 19. I know Natalie will build on the legacy that Senator Lucas and I have built in our decades serving the Commonwealth.”
Our campaign has been awarded the 2023 Moms Demand Action Gunsense Candidate Distinction and we couldn’t be more grateful to be recognized as an advocate for gunsense legislation here in the Commonwealth!
