Meet Democratic Candidate Mark Herring in Hampton on Saturday
Virginia State Senator Mark Herring of Loudoun County, the current Democratic candidate for the state’s attorney general position, will be having a two hour meet and greet event on Saturday, October 12th at the home of attorney Michael B. Hamer and his partner, Barry Menser. The host committee for the event also includes Senator John Miller (D) and Hampton Commissioner of Revenue Ross Mugler.
With election day (November 5th) fast approaching, Herring hopes to continue drumming up support for his campaign against Republican nominee, Senator Mark Obenshain of Harrisonburg.
Hammer said Obenshains voting record against progressive issues has been the core of his support for Herring. “The thought of Mark Obenshain scares me, I mean this is a man who wanted to make women go to prison for a year if they failed to call the police and report if they had a miscarriage within twenty-four hours.”
Hammer criticized Obenshain for his political similarities to current Virginia Attorney General and Republican candidate for Governor of Virginia, Ken Cuccinelli, stating that Obenshian this is a man who wants a personhood amendment to the state constitution so there could be no abortion of any kind, and, other than old-fashioned condoms, most contraception would be illegal.”
Hammer also expressed support of Herring’s policies around LGBTQ issues, saying “On gay issues, [Herring] supports gay marriage, I don’t think he’ll be an ideologue in office like Cuccinelli has been.”
Virginia, which has not had a Democratic Attorney General and a Democratic Governor in office at the same time since 1994, may soon see some drastic political changes in the near future. These elections could also hold serious implications for the LGBTQ community and the question of same-sex marriage in the state.
