The Presidency

Joe Biden and Kamala Harris will be taking on Trump in the presidential election. The Biden Harris ticket is campaigning on a record of historic investments in infrastructure through the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law, lowering prescription drug prices for seniors, and fighting corporate power by vigorously enforcing antitrust laws.

US Senate

Tim Kaine, incumbent senator and former governor of Virginia who has fought to expand the child tax credit, pass the CHIPS and Science Act, and modernize the US Navy, is running for reelection against challenger Hung Cao (R).

House of Representatives

Veteran, builder, and local entrepreneur Ken Mitchell is running to defeat incumbent congressman Ben Cline. Ken's platform focuses on ending failed trickle-down economic policies and protecting people's rights, to build an economy and a society that leaves nobody behind.

Local races

At the local level, 4 of the 7 seats on the city council and 3 of the 7 seats on the school board are up for grabs. The SDC commends candidates for running for these seats to try to serve and improve their community. These seats are non-partisan and all candidates run as independents, so the SDC generally does not endorse or take a position on candidates (though members and officers are of course free to take their own positions).
