AFP-VA State Director JC Hernandez issued the following statement:

“We’re excited to see policy champion Nick Freitas earn the confidence of Virginians and re-election to the House of Delegates. His contest presented unique challenges for our efforts, but ultimately, our activists stepped up and helped share why Nick should be sent back to Richmond with a positive message of breaking down barriers. As this cycle comes to a close, it’s time for our organization and lawmakers to continue their important work in making the Commonwealth the best place to live, work, and raise a family.”
