April Moore kicks off campaign for Virginia Senate

By  | 

HARRISONBURG, Va. (WHSV) — On Tuesday, April Moore announced that she will be running as a Democrat, challenging Republican Senator Mark Obenshain again, for the 26th District seat in the Virginia Senate.

This is Moore's second time running. The first time she ran was in 2015.

Since then, Moore said she's learned a lot, but she still plans to run on the same issues.

"To our clean air, our clean water, to our action on climate," Moore said, "in so many ways today's Republican party in Virginia and nationally is not a party that's looking out for American interests not the way it has in the past."

Moore then spoke with those who stopped by for her announcement in Harrisonburg. She was asked about topics like improving Interstate 81.

"I want to look into whether or not the tolls are temporary," Moore said. "I heard talk of maybe they would be. I would also like to see greater flexibility of emphasis on for rail, get these big trucks off the road. We can't widen roads forever."

Moore still needs 250 signatures from registered voters to appear on the ballot.
