Lindsey Davis Stover, Candidate in VA-10, Shows Early Momentum and Impressive Strength Raising over $300k in First Two Months of her Campaign

Small Business Owner and Former Obama Administration Official Finds Support as First-Time Candidate

McLean, VA – Lindsey Davis Stover, a small business owner, former Obama Administration Senior Advisor and candidate for Virginia’s 10th Congressional District, today showed a major force of strength as a first-time candidate raising more than $300,000 for her campaign in just over 70 days, collecting support from more than 600 individual donors.

“I am truly grateful for this strong early support from friends, neighbors, community leaders, small business owners, veterans, and former Obama Alums with over 600 of them investing their hard earned dollars into this movement,” said Lindsey Davis Stover, candidate for Congress in VA-10. “So many voters in this district feel like they don’t have a voice in Washington. We need a representative who shares our values and has the courage to stand up to President Trump.”  

"I’ve attended dozens of community events meeting people from Berryville to Winchester, Leesburg to Manassas and from Sully to Great Falls. I’ve met families, veterans, teachers, government employees and fellow small business owners. I share their hopes for the future and their concerns about the challenges we face today: providing access to affordable healthcare, the need to strengthen our public schools and make college more affordable for students, and working to bring jobs to our district. I am running to be their voice in Congress.”

Lindsey’s campaign is showing early grassroots strength. Most of the donors investing their hard earned dollars have given less than $200.
