I’m voting for Jennifer. One is because I support her views and second is that I believe that she can become governor of VA one day. I’m an African American male and I love to see other African American males do positive things in the community,and I even considered voting for Corey, but after talking to him on twitter and seeing who endorsed him, and reading some of the comments he made defending Trump, I believe that he leans more republican than libertarian. I’m not saying anything bad about republicans because their have been some good republican politicians, I just don’t think we need someone in the Senate whose views are regressive.

Of course we were grouped in territories that precluded equal representation. That’s the Republican way!
