“Virtual phone-bank” for Democratic control of State Senate

A special election on Tuesday August 19 in the 38th District of far southwest Virginia will decide whether Democrats or Republicans control the Virginia Senate.

The Democratic candidate, Mike Hymes, is a former coal miner and a Tazwell County supervisor.

Volunteers are needed to make phone calls on his behalf. You can do so by going to the Democratic Party of Virginia website and clicking the “Make Calls Now” button on the right.
