The National NOW PAC urges NOW members in the 1st congressional district to vote for candidate Krystal Ball and in the 8th congressional district to vote for incumbent Representative Jim Moran. Virginia NOW PAC is convinced that these candidates are solidly supportive of NOW’s key issues and can be counted on to work actively to pass laws that promote women’s equality. Election Day is November 2.
Jim Moran has served the 8th district since 1991. His opponent, Republican Patrick Murray, moved to the district little more than a year ago and does not support our issues. He has called Roe v. Wade “…the worse decision ever handed down by the Supreme Court.” He pledged to repeal health care reform, supports Bush tax cuts for the wealthy, and attacked his primary opponent for supporting gay rights. Moran has always supported a woman’s right to choose, opposes Don’t Ask Don’t Tell, worked to pass health care reform, and supports fiscally responsible and tax policy. See Moran’s voting record.
Krystal Ball, a certified public accountant (CPA), has focused on building healthy communities through economic prosperity, an educated citizenry, and a safe, healthy environment. She is an entrepreneur and a mother who is very knowledgeable about issues of concern to NOW members. Her opponent Rob Wittman has consistently received a 0 rating from NARAL Pro-Choice America because he has NEVER voted in favor reproductive rights. See Wittman’s voting record.
The 8th Congressional District includes: Arlington County, parts of Fairfax County, and the cities of Alexandria and Falls Church.
The 1st Congressional District includes: the cities of entirety of: Fredericksburg, Poquoson and Williamsburg and the counties of Charles City, Essex, Fauquier, Gloucester, James City, King and Queen, King George, King William, Lancaster, Mathews, Middlesex, Northumberland, Prince William, Richmond, Spotsylvania, Stafford, Westmoreland, and York and portions of Hampton and Newport News.
