In honor of Women’s History Month, Gonzalo Aida, president of the Virginia Young Democrats released this statement:


Richmond, Virginia – “This month, the Virginia Young Democrats and our nation celebrate Women’s History Month.

Each year, our nation pauses to remember all of the women, past and present, that have contributed to our nation’s greatness - pioneering politicians, policymakers, adventurers, scientists, industrialists, economists, teachers, caregivers and thinkers that have made America into the world’s wealthiest and most powerful nation.

As we reflect on their sacrifices and victories, we recommit ourselves to shattering the remaining glass ceilings that prevent women and our nation from achieving our greatest potential.

John Foust (VA-10) Campaign Invasion

The Virginia Young Democrats are proud to announce that we will be hosting a Commonwealth-wide invasion for John Foust. John Foust is the Democratic congressional candidate in the nation's most competitive red-to-blue district (VA-10). Join us as we knock doors and make calls to tell voters about John's commonsense platform versus Barbara Comstock's divisive tea party agenda.

Be there with our young Democrats from all over the commonwealth, have fun, and help elect a true Democratic leader to Congress! Make sure to RSVP below and tell a friend!

The Difference Between Young Democrats and College Republicans



Virginia – October 10, 2013 – News Release –This week, the College Republican National Committee is out with their newest deadpan attempt at political activism – a video in the style of MTV’s popular Catfish: The TV Show.

“Frankly, it might be the silliest attempt at winning votes for Cuccinelli I’ve seen in recent months,” said Virginia Young Democrats (VAYD’s) spokesman, James Lewis. “They are trying to frame Terry McAuliffe as an online creep when the real creep is Ken Cuccinelli and his desire to be in the bedroom of every Virginian.”

Some have questioned the Virginia Young Democrats concerning a counter-ad buy. There are no plans to directly address the ad with paid media.

“Instead of making videos not fit for YouTube, the Virginia Young Democrats are knocking doors and making phone calls to help elect Terry and the entire Democratic slate,” said Jarrod Nagurka, political director for the Virginia Young Democrats. “You win elections by talking to voters and making person-to-person connections. That’s what VAYD is about and what Terry’s campaign has been about – the people of Virginia.”

According to media coverage, the ad buy is expected to reach 1.5 million specifically targeting young ladies between the ages of 18 and 26.

“This ad isn’t going to have any effect on young women,” said Roma Moradian VAYD Women's Caucus Chair.“Young women will be voting against Ken Cuccinelli because he’s clearly ignorant on women’s issues and a poor excuse for a comedic political ad isn’t going to change Cuccinelli’s anti-women record and positions.”
