Virginia 10th Congressional District  

Virginia CD10

Virginia Congressional District 10

We the People of the United States…

As per the Constitution, the U.S. House of Representatives makes and passes federal laws. The House is one of Congress’s two chambers (the other is the U.S. Senate), and part of the federal government’s legislative branch. The number of voting representatives in the House is fixed by law at no more than 435, proportionally representing the population of the 50 states.

Voters in Virginia elect 11 Representatives from 11 Districts to serve in the US Congress.

The Tenth Congressional District of Virginia includes all of Rappahannock County, Fauquier County, and Loudoun County, parts of Fairfax County and Prince William County, as well as the independent cities of Manassas and Manassas Park.

Every 10 years after the census is completed boundaries of these are redrawn. The Constitution of Virginia (get PDF here) gives the General Assembly great flexibility to define the boundaries for election districts, requiring only that:

 Every electoral district shall be composed of contiguous and compact territory and shall be so constituted as to give, as nearly as is practicable, representation in proportion to the population of the district.

 Re-Elect US President Joe Biden!

US President Joe Biden

US President Joe Biden

 President Joe Biden delivered on his promises!

Just six weeks into his presidency, Joe Biden signed the American Rescue Plan to jumpstart our economy and change the course of the pandemic. The American Rescue Plan funded our national vaccination campaign and helped safely reopen America’s schools.

President Biden worked across the aisle to deliver what decades of presidents promised and failed to do: rebuild our nation’s roads and bridges, upgrade our public transit, clean up pollution, and provide high-speed internet to every American.

President Biden appointed Justice Ketanji Brown Jackson, the first Black woman to ever serve on the Supreme Court. She is also the first public defender to serve on our nation’s highest court.

The Bipartisan Safer Communities Act is the most significant gun violence prevention legislation in 30 years. It will help keep guns out of the hands of dangerous people, narrow the “boyfriend loophole,” and expand mental health and safety services in schools.

The CHIPS Act will bring back manufacturing from overseas and create good-paying union jobs here at home. Since President Biden signed it into law, companies have already announced almost $300 billion in new American manufacturing investments.

President Biden signed into law the most significant expansion of benefits and services for toxic-exposed veterans in more than 30 years.

President Biden signed the Respect for Marriage Act to enshrine marriage equality for same-sex and interracial couples into federal law.

President Biden signed landmark legislation to bring down costs for families, lower prescription drug prices, and make historic investments in American clean energy jobs and manufacturing. Every single Republican in Congress voted against it.

President Biden pardoned all prior federal offenses of simple marijuana possession, removing a burden to employment, housing, and educational opportunities for thousands of Americans.

In the wake of the Supreme Court’s decision to overturn Roe v. Wade and strip a constitutional right from the American people, President Biden issued executive orders to preserve access to reproductive care and protect the right to travel across state lines to receive care.

President Biden rejoined the Paris Climate Accords on his first day in office. He is delivering on the most aggressive climate agenda in American history through historic investments in clean energy.

Since the start of Vladimir Putin’s unprovoked invasion of Ukraine, President Biden has rallied the world to stand with Ukraine, defend democracy, and stand up to autocracy.

President Biden has worked to protect and strengthen the Affordable Care Act. Now, millions of Americans are saving $800 per year on their health insurance and 4-in-5 Americans can find coverage for $10 a month or less through the ACA.

President Biden signed a landmark executive order to promote safe and accountable policing, ban chokeholds, restrict no-knock entries by police, create a national police accountability database, and prohibit the transfer of military equipment to local police departments.

President Biden has approved the cancellation of billions in student loan debt for millions of Americans, as well as the largest increase in Pell Grants in over a decade.

 Re-Elect US Senator Tim Kaine!

US Senator Time Kaine

US Senator Tim Kaine

 Senator Tim Kaine works to bring people together and make Virginia the best place to live, work, and raise a family. He has dedicated his life to helping others as a missionary, civil rights lawyer, and public servant. Tim’s life has been guided by the faith and values instilled by his parents, teachers and friends.

Growing up working in his family’s ironworking shop in Kansas City, Tim learned to prioritize hard work, kindness, and service. After graduating from the University of Missouri, Tim embarked on a transformative journey that would shape his lifelong vocation. He volunteered at a technical school founded by Jesuit missionaries in El Progreso, Honduras, where he taught carpentry and welding. He learned how one person can make a difference and saw how a good education is vital to ensuring that everyone can live up to their God-given potential.

Tim went on to earn a law degree from Harvard Law School, where he met his wife of nearly 40 years, Anne Holton. Anne, the daughter of Virginia Governor Linwood Holton, shared Tim’s commitment to helping others and together they embarked on a life journey of service and advocacy.

Following law school, Tim and Anne settled in Richmond, found a church community and were blessed to raise three children. For 17 years, Tim worked as a civil rights lawyer, representing people facing discrimination by banks, landlords, and local governments. In 1998, Tim helped to secure one of the largest civil rights jury verdicts ever for people facing racial discrimination in obtaining homeowners insurance. Motivated to help solve issues faced by many of his clients, Tim ran for Richmond City Council and won his first race by just 97 votes.

As a City Council member and later Mayor of Richmond, Tim worked with others to cut crime, build schools, create good-paying jobs, and clean up the James River. Tim’s work helped Richmond reverse decades of declining population and begin a major renaissance. Tim’s success as mayor propelled him to election as Virginia’s Lieutenant Governor and Governor.

As Governor, Tim demonstrated true fiscal stewardship by managing the state through a national recession while also expanding early childhood and technical education, improving public safety, preserving open space and investing in cleaning up the Chesapeake Bay. By the end of his term in 2010, leading national publications recognized Virginia as America’s Best Managed State, the Best State for Business, and Best State for Children..

 Elect Suhas Subramanyam!

VA  CD10 Candidate Suhas Subramanyam

VA Senator Suhas Subramanyam

 VA Senator Suhas Subramanyam’s family's story in America began right here in Virginia in 1979, at Dulles Airport. His mother, a native of Bengaluru, India, immigrated to the United States to unite with his father, live her American dream, and pursue a career in medicine.

Suhas’s parents taught him the value of service from a young age and, while attending Tulane University in New Orleans, Suhas took those lessons to heart when he helped organize volunteers to rebuild the communities affected by Hurricane Katrina.

Suhas has since worked tirelessly to improve the health and prosperity of all Virginians and Americans. He served on Capitol Hill as a policy aide, where he worked to expand and improve health care access to millions of Americans, helped build a bipartisan coalition in support of the DREAM Act, and drafted legislation to increase job opportunities and funding for veterans.

After earning his law degree with honors at Northwestern University, Suhas served as a White House technology policy advisor to President Obama. During his time in the Obama Administration, Suhas tackled some of the most challenging issues facing our nation, including addressing cybersecurity threats and modernizing government agencies so that they were better equipped to serve the needs of the American people.
