Washington Post Endorses Don Beyer in Democratic Primary

Editorial notes that Beyer "hasn’t appeared on a ballot in 17 years, but he’s stayed active on issues that have concerned him for years, including teen pregnancy and high school dropouts."

The Washington Post this weekend endorsed Don Beyer in the Democratic primary race for Virginia's 8th congressional District.

"He would make a first-rate addition to this region’s unusually effective congressional delegation, and we endorse him in the June 10 primary," the newspaper editorial said.

Without naming names, the Post editorial noted that other Democrats in the primary race "have jockeyed to claim the title as the most left-leaning liberal in the race — and pander to primary voters in the 8th District, one of the most reliably Democratic seats in the country — Mr. Beyer, alone in the field, has a credible chance of working across the aisle to enact legislation, even in Capitol Hill’s shambolic status quo."

The Democratic primary is June 10; the winner will face Repubican Micah Edmond.
