The General Assembly adjourned Saturday -- without a state budget.
Governor Terry McAuliffe and his allies in the Senate are refusing to pass a budget until Virginia expands Obamacare.
I strongly oppose Obamacare, but regardless of how you feel about that issue, holding hostage funding for our schools, colleges and universities and local governments is wrong.
Now, I need your help.
Governor McAuliffe is one of the most prolific political fundraisers in history. He is going to marshal the vast resources of the national Democratic Party to try and pressure us to accept Obamacare.
I need you to chip in $25, $50, $75 or whatever you can spare to help fight back. Please make checks payable to Leftwich for Delegate and mail them to 308 Cedar Lakes Drive, 2nd Floor, Chesapeake, VA 23322 or you may contribute at my website.
I also need you to sign this petition telling the Governor that you want Virginia to pass a clean budget.
Thank you for your support. Together, we can win this fight.
James "Jay" Leftwich, Jr.
Chesapeake's 78th House District.
