Meets with voters in Onancock
NORFOLK, VA – With the first campaign finance reports of 2019 out this week, the landscape for this fall’s elections is beginning to take shape — and Phil Hernandez’s campaign for the 100th House of Delegates district is a hot spot in the slowly solidifying map. Here are some highlights of the week:
- GRASSROOTS SUPPORT NETS PHIL $48,079. Monday’s quarterly report revealed that Phil’s hard work through the winter had paid off. Phil raised 96%, or 25 times more than his opponent, and is beginning Q2 with more cash on hand. With nearly 220 individual donors, Phil’s first quarter showing demonstrates the people-focused, people-powered nature of his campaign for delegate of Virginia’s 100th district.
○ Read Henandez’s reaction to the Q1 filings now: “From the start, we’ve been committed to running an inclusive campaign that’s powered by the people,” said Phil Hernandez, candidate for Virginia’s 100th House of Delegates District. “Everyone in this district—from Norfolk to the Eastern Shore—deserves to be heard and help shape the future of our community. Too often, the legislation that comes out of Richmond is out of step with our values here in Coastal Virginia. We can—and must—do better when it comes to funding public education, advocating for coastal resilience to protect our livelihoods and homes, and building an economy that works for working class families, not just people at the top. I want to thank everyone who’s already donated their time, talents, and resources to help make that vision a reality.”
