Two years ago Berniecrat and Democratic Socialist Lee Carter accomplished the impossible in Manassas (Virginia's HD-50). He ran and won-- with more hostility than support from the Democratic establishment-- against incumbent Jackson Miller, Republican majority whip of the House of Delegates.
Carter, a former Marine, was targeted and derided by the GOP as a socialist-- and voters flocked to the polls to vote for him.
Although Miller got the most votes he had ever had before, Carter beat him in the long-time red district 11,366 (54.42%) to 9,518 (45.58%).
Last December he introduced House Bill 1806, which would overturn the state's right-to-work law. It hasn't passed... at least not yet.
"ran on a platform of combatting poverty. During his inaugural term he worked with dedication to help fulfill these promises, but that fight isn’t over yet. He continues to fight for the working class, and does so while building a strong coalition of support."
