Defend democracy in the South.


Six Democratic candidates running this fall to represent Virginia in Congress are among the latest politicians to have signed a pledge promising not to take any money from electric utility monopolies in order to "remove the appearance of influence through campaign donations." They are, clockwise from top left, Vangie Williams, Elaine Luria, Leslie Cockburn, Jennifer Wexton, Anthony Flaccavento, and Jennifer Lewis. (Photos via Ballotpedia.)
