Democrats Nominate Matt Rowe for Congress in Virginia’s First Congressional District 

First Congressional District Democratic Chairman Marc Broklawski announced today that Bowling Green Town Councilman Matt Rowe will be the Democratic nominee for Congress. The filing deadline was today, May 7th at 5:00 p.m.; Councilman Rowe entered the race on March 31, 2016.

Chairman Broklawski released the following statement:

“Matt understands the challenges communities and people face in our diverse district and as a councilman, he has a proven record of leadership and knows how to fight for working families.

The contrast between Councilman Rowe and Congressman Wittman couldn’t be clearer. Congressman Wittman is running for Governor while receiving a taxpayer-funded salary, and he endorsed Donald Trump, the most dangerously unfit nominee in modern history. He has the chutzpah and poor judgement to force taxpayers to pay him while he runs for Governor and ignores his duties. The Trump-Wittman ticket is dangerously out-of-touch with our district.

Virginia’s First Congressional District has challenges that deserve attention from a full-time Congressman. Matt Rowe knows our infrastructure needs more investment. We have the worst traffic of anywhere in the Commonwealth. Matt knows the issues district residents care about and is committed to rolling up his sleeves and working for us full-time.”

Matt Rowe was the only candidate to meet the filing requirements and the Congressional nomination portion of the upcoming convention on May 21, 2016 is hereby cancelled. The convention to nominate delegates and alternates to the Democratic National Convention will continue as planned.
