Virginia's beautiful and historic First District deserves to be represented by someone who wants tomorrow to be even better than its past.


Imagine Our Future:

  • Universal healthcare in a free market, and firmly believe that those in need of care should receive it.
  • Outstanding schools in every zip code, because every child should have the opportunity to succeed.
  • Major investments in our infrastructure that will push us into the future
  • Immediate action on climate change that emphasizes the responsible usage of resources and research on new technologies.
  • Real efforts to reduce gun violence in order to ensure the safety of the American people. 
  • Campaign finance reform, because our elected officials should be beholden to their voters, not to special interest groups. 

I pledge to remain faithful to my principles, and to the voters who place their trust in me. 

Called to Action. Ready to Serve.

Congratulations Vangie!

I congratulate Vangie on her convincing victory and I will back her 110% and ask all my supporters to do the same. Because this was never about any of the three of us which is why we show each other affection and respect. It was always about what kind of country we want to live in, healthcare for all, first class education and infrastructure, equality, action on climate change and gun violence, and campaign finance reform. You care, you’re passionate, you’re dedicated, and you’re going to make a difference come next January.

Thank You Volunteers

I want to thank everyone who worked so hard to advance progressive values this primary season, those who believe healthcare is a human right, that a first class education is the gift every American child should receive, that true equality means equal rights and equal pay, that investment in infrastructure improves our economy while reducing our carbon footprint and helps the environment, that taking action on gun violence is a question of political courage not constitutional amendments, and that we need campaign finance reform, and to overturn Citizen’s United, because special interests are not people, but the peoples interests are special, and should always come first.

Suddarth Calls Out Primary Competitor

Free Lance Star 6/9/18: 'The candidates have mainly touted their own attributes rather than attack each other, though Suddarth said Santana played “dirty politics” by misrepresenting his stance on the Atlantic Coast and Mountain Valley oil pipelines. Santana, who opposes pipelines, told The Free Lance–Star that Suddarth has “voiced support” for pipelines.
“I don’t think we should be continuing to invest in fossil fuel infrastructure,” Santana said.
But Suddarth said he opposes the Atlantic Coast and Mountain Valley pipelines, calling the proposed fuel production for those projects “environmentally unsound.” Still, he said he does believe pipelines in general represent a safer way to transport fuel than tanker trucks or trains.
“It’s politically easy just to say you’re against pipelines, and I’m not going to say that,” he said, adding that shutting off pipelines would put gas stations out of business. He noted that he is not accepting donations from Dominion Energy or the fossil-fuel industry.'
