AYD Campaign Invasion for Joshua Cole

Back for more. Back for Virginia.

The Arlington Young Democrats are pleased to support Josh Cole for his 2nd run at the House of Delegates in District 28. Josh Cole was famously robbed of his win in 2017, and the clerical error cost us the majority in the House. Now, it’s time to take back the 28th and take back the house.
