Keam Tapped For Obama Campaign's 'Virginia Truth Team'

Vienna-Oakton delegate, other Democrats to stump for President across 2012 battleground state

Del. Mark Keam and U.S. Rep Gerry Connolly were appointed to the Obama re-electon campaign's 'Virginia Truth Team' this week,  joining Rep. Jim Moran and a host of other Democrats to aid in spreading Obama's campaign message and responding to attacks from his opponents.

After narrowly carrying Virginia in 2008, the Obama campaign expects a tough race this year, especially after Republicans took control of the General Assembly last year. Virginia Gov. Bob McDonnell is also often mentioned as for Mitt Romney. 

"President Obama’s record should speak for itself," Del. Scott Surovell (Fairfax) said in a press release. "[B]etween the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act, preventing a complete collapse of the economy, ending the War in Iraq, saving the auto industry, the capture of Osama Bin Laden, raising fuel efficiency standards, repealing "Don't Ask Don't Tell," and reforming the financial sector, the president and his administration have a lot to be proud of." 

Other Northern Virginia democrats on the team include Surovel, Sen. Adam Ebbin (Alexandria), Del. Charniele Herring (Alexandria), former Sen. Mary Margaret Whipple (Arlington) and Fairfax County Democratic Committee Chair Cesar del Aguila, according to the Washington Post.

Congratulations to Del. Keam. I hope you will continue to fight the Republican war on women in the Va State Assembly and in the Obama Campaign.

War on women. Another great talking point. Ugh. Can't we please talk about the real issues? Debt, spending, jobs?

It’s so much easier for the Left to demonize the Right and hurl insults than it is to simply admit their mistakes, take ownership of a problem and reach a solution.

And just what would you call the bills in the Assembly to take away women's reproductive rights? These bill affect your mothers, daughters, sisters, girlfriends, all the women in your life. I call that a war, not a talking point.

The same is true for the Right...both sides do this.
