Not in House District 054? Click here to choose your customized guide.
Democratic candidate Neri Canahui-Ortiz is the President of Local 1665 Carpenters Union. Canahui-Ortiz may be new to politics but he is not new to serving his community. He has been an advocate for policies that impact all Virginians, including our immigrant community. He is also outspoken on the atrocities occurring at the border and vows to fight for sensible gun laws.
His opponent is Delegate Robert Orrock Sr., a far-right conservative who was elected to the House of Delegates in 1990. He voted to notify ICE when undocumented Virginians are in police custody, even for low-level and non-violent offenses. He was also a staunch opponent of Medicaid expansion in Virginia. Orrock is also anti-choice and believes politicians should insert themselves between people and their doctors when making medical decisions.
Canahui-Ortiz is the progressive choice in this race due to his support of unions, the immigrant community, and gun violence prevention.
