Statement from Shelly Simonds on Today’s Drawing

RICHMOND, Va. – Shelly Simonds today issued the following statement on today’s drawing in Richmond:

“When people asked me today if I felt lucky, the answer was and always will be ‘yes.’ I have a wonderful life, family, career and community. I have health care. I had access to a quality education. I can see a doctor when I’m sick. Not everyone in this world, this country, and the 94th District is as lucky. There are nearly 400,000 Virginians who have been denied access to affordable health care through Medicaid expansion. I hope our lawmakers in the House of Delegates do not leave their fate to a game of chance.
 
“I am tremendously grateful to my supporters. They will be the first to know of any next steps.”
