A Packed house of Leslie Cockburn supporters cheered on the Democratic candidate through a decisive victory in the 5th district’s second 2018 congressional debate
Warrenton, VA – This evening, Leslie Cockburn took the stage for the second VA-05 congressional debate in Washington, Virginia. More than one hundred Cockburn supporters arrived early to the Little Washington Theatre to secure a seat ahead of the debate and support Leslie.
“Leslie was the clear winner of tonight’s debate,” said Cockburn campaign manager Louise Bruce. “Leslie outlined her vision for the 5th district; a substantial platform centered around bettering the lives of Virginians through affordable healthcare, better education, and leveling the economic playing field – without taking a single penny from special interests and corporate PACs.”
“In Denver we saw a candidate clearly out of touch with real people in the 5th district. A candidate who dismissed the damage Trump Tariffs have inflicted on VA-05 farmers and could not articulate a plan to lower healthcare costs in our community.”
