Mark Downey Wins Democratic Primary for the 96th House of Delgates

Category: News


Thank you all for your support!

I am in awe of everyone and humbled by the endless hours of hard work to win this campaign. I have great respect and admiration for Rebecca and Chris for making me a better candidate.

This was never about me, but rather about Virginians. Common sense gun safety legislation, healthcare and mental health access for all, universal early childhood education, protecting the environment, and equal rights are what all people want and deserve regardless of party. These are causes for us to work together.

Over the past 18 years as a pediatrician, I’ve had one conversation at a time with people across the political spectrum. My lifelong ties to the community make way for healthy discourse, a Primary win and a victory in November!

Our opponent has mountains of money and decades of power so we must quickly coalesce to even come close. Tonight, we celebrate. Tomorrow, we get to work! Our children are counting on us.

With Thanks,
