On behalf of the 5th Congressional Democratic Committee, thank you to Dr. Cameron Webb for courageously running very hard to “flip the fifth”. You were a terrific candidate and you are an honorable person. You put together a strong team and built an impressive foundation of active volunteers. We are so disappointed you did not win, and we hope that this isn’t the last we see of you.
Dr. Webb, I really appreciate how you reached out all across the district, meeting voters and listening to their concerns. You are the kind of representative we need in Congress and the kind of person we are happy to have as our neighbor.
I also want to thank the members of the district Democratic committee, our local committee chairs, and the local Democratic Committees in the fifth CD. A congressional campaign cannot be run by only staff—it takes a large team to coordinate across this large district. Thank you to all the volunteers who put in countless hours phone banking, door-canvassing, event holding, and data tracking. Your work lives on past the election as we continually improve our voter information and gradually increase the margins. Thank you for your time and efforts, and for being a part of our team. We hope you will continue to be involved; Virginia has an election every year, so there are new opportunities ahead.
Suzanne Long, Chair, 5th CD Democratic Committee
