Democratic candidate Dr. Mike Asip is a 38-year career special education and middle school leader and ten-year resident of Powhatan County. Dr. Asip vows to advocate for affordable health care, mental health services, and workforce development to expand economic opportunity in his district and across the Commonwealth. He would like to address the inequities of broadband access across the rural parts of the 65th district which limit economic development and educational opportunity in the district.

Dr. Asip is running against incumbent Republican Delegate R. Lee Ware. Delegate Ware has served in the Virginia House of Delegates since 1998. He supported a bill that would allow someone with a protective order against them to carry a concealed weapon. He is also against abortion access and voted to defund Planned Parenthood.

Mike Asip is the more progressive choice in this race because of his commitment to Medicaid expansion and dedication to increasing internet access in rural communities.
