Kleiner gets Democratic Party nod in 20th


Local Democrats on Wednesday nominated Laura Kleiner to compete for the 20th House District seat in the Virginia General Assembly.

“I am honored to be the Democratic nominee for the 20th House District,” said Kleiner, who will face Republican incumbent Dickie Bell in the November election. “I am running because I believe our Virginian values are worth fighting for.”

Kleiner thanked the many volunteers who swelled her campaign in its weeks leading up to tonight’s caucus. “I know that I cannot do this alone,” she said. “You lifted my spirits, and together, we proved that Virginians in the 20th District care about our children, our future.”

“Tomorrow, our campaign will move full speed ahead to victory in November, and we will seek the support of everyone to do it,” Kleiner said. “If tonight is proof of anything, it’s that when we stand together, we can accomplish great things.”
