Hernandez’s compelling life story of rising from humble beginnings resonates with the Commonwealth’s voters. As a scholarship recipient and former study-abroad student in the United Kingdom, Hernandez understands the importance of intercultural communications – a critical necessity in dealing effectively with the growing number of immigrants in Virginia, many of whom are of Hispanic descent. Moreover, Hernandez’s non-profit legal work for the rights of working people and low-income families demonstrates his commitment to the community. His environmental policy analysis experience while serving in the Obama administration further prepares him to be an outstanding delegate and a strong voice for all the people of this district.
On Tuesday, November 5th, voters of Virginia’s 100th district will have a clear choice. They can choose to support the incumbent and his agenda which includes ignoring women’s rights by rejecting the Equal Rights Amendment and accepting donations from the National Rifle Association. Or they can choose Phil Hernandez, a passionate and dedicated public servant who demands improved schools and cleaner air, and thus flip this seat from red to blue. The Democrats Abroad Hispanic Caucus Steering Committee urges all overseas constituents of Virginia’s 100th House District to request their ballot (in English or Spanish) and elect Latinx Democratic candidate Phil Hernandez.
