ROANOKE – Delegate Sam Rasoul (D-11) announced Wednesday that his campaign for Lieutenant Governor will donate at least $10,000 to candidates supported by his Impact Center PAC. The announcement comes the same day the Impact Center secured its tenth House candidate to support this cycle.
“These candidates stepped up to run in districts where people often feel left behind. Their campaigns and voices deserve to be uplifted. Our campaign and the Impact Center are here to assist them however we can,” Rasoul said. “This is about building a deep bench of progressives and eliminating barriers so Democrats can run strong across Virginia.”
Since Rasoul launched the Impact Center in 2016, it has trained more than 2,000 activists and candidates around the Commonwealth using innovative, values-centered leadership and communication techniques. The Impact Center assisted more than 25 state legislative candidates in 2019.
The current slate of Impact Center candidates includes:
Bridgette Craighead, HD-9 (Franklin County)
Rhett Deitz, HD-14 (Danville)
Jennifer Kitchen, HD-25 (Augusta County)
Dr. Rachel Levy, HD-55 (Hanover County)
Blakely Lockhart, HD-56 (Louisa County)
Dr. Ben Moses, HD-59 (Campbell County)
Dr. Jeffrey Feld, HD-81 (Virginia Beach City)
Tracie Liguid, HD-84 (Virginia Beach City)
Dr. Mark Downey, HD-96 (James City County)
Finale Norton, HD-100 (Accomack County)
Next month, Rasoul will be hosting a virtual fundraiser with several of the candidates and other guests. All proceeds will go directly to Impact Center candidates.
