Americans For Responsible Solutions PAC Endorses Kathleen Murphy For The Virginia House Of DelegatesAugust 30, 2017Press Release
WASHINGTON, DC -- Americans for Responsible Solutions PAC, the gun violence prevention organization founded by former Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords and Navy Combat Veteran and retired NASA astronaut Captain Mark Kelly, announced today their endorsement of Kathleen Murphy for the Virginia House of Delegates.
It is time we move political redistricting out of closed back room and into an open, impartial process. Why do I believe this is so important?
Editor: Del. Kathleen Murphy (D-34th) is a tireless advocate in Richmond for expanding Medicaid to an estimated 400,000 Virginians who have no health care.

In these times of disarray among Republican leaders on a health-care solution, we need a leader who reaches across the aisle like Del. Murphy.
