Arlington Dems Urge Voters to Reject Politics of Hate

Arlington County Democrats passed a resolution in support of responsible immigration policies last night at their October public meeting, calling upon voters to reject the divisive politics being used by Republicans in neighboring jurisdictions to exploit the issue for political gain.   “Virginia Republicans have nothing to offer the voters, so once again they’re peddling hatred and fear,” said ACDC Chairman Peter Rousselot. “The voters of Virginia should recognize these attacks for what they are: acts of political desperation.”  

With elections for the Senate and House of Delegates less than six weeks away, Republicans are stepping up publicity campaigns across the state. They have been facing unexpectedly strong challenges in traditional Republican strongholds, and may be hoping to use this issue to divide the growing ranks of Democratic voters.
