    "I support controlling in-state tuition to keep higher education accessible to our youth."

    ➔ Human Rights +

    "...it is imperative that the Virginia state government protect all of citizens regardless of their sexual orientation.

    ➔ Gun Violence Prevention +

  • Create tax incentives for gun owners to purchase gun safes
