For ordinary Virginians who really care about politics, Saturdays from now until November can be really packed with political activities, but it's important to fit in occasions for fun, too!
Tomorrow, for instance, Lowell will be driving nearly 6 hours at the crack of dawn to report on Tim Kaine's debate with Jerry Kilgore...in West Virginia. Waldo and other bloggers will be at home all morning to live-blog the event. Democrats around Virginia will be attending debate "non-watching parties" at locations throughout the Commonwealth in the morning. Many groups such as the Falls Church City Democratic Committee will head out to canvass neighborhoods. Progressive activists working with America Votes coalition partners will be participating in Day of Action events for this year's Virginia elections at locations around Virginia as well as in DC.
All that work should be rewarded with some relaxation and fun, so we're looking forward to Saturday night's Democracy for Virginia House Party in Alexandria. It'll be a casual potluck event, a great way to relax and meet new friends after a day of political action. Special guests will include two inspiring Democratic candidates for Virginia House of Delegates. We hope to see you there!
