A Creative Innovator
Aneesh served as Secretary of Technology for then Governor Tim Kaine. President Obama appointed him to be the nation’s first Chief Technology Officer. He is one of the brightest and creative minds in Virginia when it comes to technology, innovation and new approaches to solving problems.
He is also the one candidate who understands that the hybrid tax enacted this year not only punishes people for doing the right thing, but actually taxes innovation. He has pledged to work with me towards repealing it.
A Democratic Team Player
Aneesh and I first met in 2005 when we set up a Political Action Committee to elect other Democratic Delegates all around Virginia. That year, six of the eight delegates we invested in won their races including three delegates running in open seats (Chuck Caputo, David Bulova & David Marsden) and one challenging a Republican incumbent (David Poisson).
In the last six months, Aneesh has also helped our Caucus grow our numbers by taking time to headline fundraisers for our Democratic challengers all around Virginia even during his own race. We need a Lieutenant Governor who is going to help grow our team.
In 2007, silicon chips passed coal and tobacco as Virginia’s largest exports. In 2008, Virginia voted for a Democratic presidential candidate for the first time since 1964. This state is changing and Aneesh Chopra represents our future.
Virginia’s Democratic Party is at its strongest when young people, women, minorities, new Americans get to the polls. Aneesh is the candidate that will inspire them them to get out to vote in November and will present a clear choice for voters over the extremist Tea Party candidate E.W. Jackson.

Make sure you vote Tuesday and please vote for Aneesh Chopra.
