We are delighted to invite you to a special member telebriefing featuring history-making Delegate-elect Danica Roem from Virginia and Ralph Northamâ€™s campaign manager Bradley Komar. We learned a lot from the resounding progressive victories in the 2017 elections and we are going to use these takeaways to our advantage in 2018. Bradley will give us the inside scoop on what strategies paid off and why VA is a strong indicator of what progressives have the potential to do nationally in 2018. And we are thrilled to have Danica, one of PFAW Next Up Victory Fundâ€™s early endorsees, joining us to discuss her historic campaign that kicked one of Virginiaâ€™s most extreme anti-LGBTQ legislators out of office.
The telebriefing will take place on Tuesday December 5 at 4pm ET.
What: Member telebriefing with Danica Roem and Bradley Komar
Columnist Frank Bruni profiled Roem in the New York Times recently:
â€śShe wasnâ€™t making a deeply personal appeal and imploring voters to affirm her. She was making a broadly public one and encouraging them to include her, lest her talents go untapped and her potential contributions unrealized. Her opponent, a Republican, was the one who made a big issue of her gender identity. Roem, a Democrat, let his cruelties roll off her, went back to knocking on doors, defined her common ground with fellow Virginians and planted herself there.â€ť
We are lucky to have both of these talented individuals on this call, so make sure you RSVP to secure a slot now!
