From the office of State Senator Donald McEachin:
McEachin to Announce Run for Congress on March 15
Henrico – Senator A. Donald McEachin (D-Henrico), having turned in his paperwork and petitions, will be announcing his run for Congress tomorrow, Tuesday, March 15.
Senator McEachin gathered over 3000 signatures, three times the required number. He is turning in his petitions on the first day, at the first hour, they can legally be submitted. The outpouring of support that allowed the Senator to have so many valid signatures at such an early date demonstrates a groundswell of support for his candidacy. The campaign has checked the signatures on the voter file and can attest that the vast majority are valid. Senator McEachin will most assuredly be on the ballot for the Democratic nomination.
Tomorrow, March 15, Senator McEachin will be releasing a statement announcing his candidacy and have press availability.
