The front-runner in a crowded Democratic primary to succeed retiring Rep. James P. Moran, D-Va., released the first television ad of the race on Thursday, less than two months from the primary.
Former Lt. Gov. Don Beyer, one of 10 Democrats running in the June 10 primary, touts his commitment to women’s issues, such as abortion rights and equal pay, in the 30-second spot.
“I was in the Senate when Don Beyer was lieutenant governor and saw him in action. There is no one I would trust more than Don Beyer with protecting a woman’s right to choose,” former state Sen. Mary Margaret Whipple says in ad.
