Kai Degner for Congress

Good news, in case you didn’t know: While Tom Howarth unfortunately had to drop out of the race for Congress in the Sixth District for health reasons, another excellent Democrat, Kai Degner, has stepped in to run against Bob Goodlatte. Kai is 35 years old and a member of the Harrisonburg City Council.

The fact that Goodlatte has endorsed Donald Trump for president is enough to disqualify him from serving another term as our representative in Congress.

You can find out more about Kai and his campaign (and of course donate much-needed money) at his website.

You can visit and “like” his Facebook page here.
