Alexandria, Va. – Lavern Chatman, Democratic candidate in Virginia’s 8th Congressional District, today released her first ad of the campaign entitled, “New.” Chatman is the only woman running in the June 10 democratic primary.

“I grew up in a working class family in Northern Virginia. I’ve spent my career in the trenches. Building coalitions. Making our community stronger,” Chatman says in a voiceover in the spot. “In Congress, I’ll fight for equal pay for equal work. Raising the minimum wage. And protecting a woman’s right to make our health care decisions. We don’t need more of the same.”

The new ad highlights Chatman’s record of community leadership, as well as priorities if elected to Congress – pay equity for women, raising the minimum wage, and protecting a woman’s right to make her own health care decisions.
