DUMFRIES, VA - Today, Andrea Bailey announced her candidacy for the 7th Congressional District. Bailey is a lifelong Democrat who is currently a Prince William County Supervisor. She also released an endorsement from former Virginia Governor, Ralph Northam.

“All of my life I have been driven by a sense of service and my moral compass. As part of a military family, I’m a patriotic defender of American democracy. I’m honored to be endorsed by the former Governor who shares in my vision, and my campaign will be powered by the people and focused on the people,” said Bailey.

“I am a pragmatic no nonsense Democrat who will work to restore confidence in Congress. While I will always stand by my core beliefs and principles, I believe in compromise to get things done. There is far too much fighting and not enough talking in our current Congress."

Prior to announcing her run for Congress, Bailey has been instrumental in championing progressive policies in Prince William County including securing funds to build Prince William County’s first Crisis Receiving Center for mental health, passing Prince William County’s first Collective Bargaining Ordinance, and prioritizing affordable and workforce housing.

“I want to bring my skills, experience, and success representing constituents in Virginia's 2nd largest county to the federal level. As your next Congresswoman for Virginia’s 7th Congressional District, I will continue to be a progressive champion of working families and fight for access to affordable healthcare, end the stigmatization of mental health struggles, and ensure that our teachers get the resources they need so every child receives a quality education,” said Bailey.

"I am honored to endorse my friend, Supervisor Andrea Bailey, for Congress. Her unwavering dedication to serving her community and her proven ability to collaborate across the aisle make her the ideal person to represent District 7 in Congress." - Fmr. Governor Ralph Northam
