Tim Craig

EMILY's List, which is dedicated to helping women win elective office, announced today they are supporting Leslie L. Byrne in the Democratic primary for Congress in the 11th Distirct.

"Leslie Byrne is a strong, proven leader with more than 20 years of service to her community," said Ellen R. Malcolm, president of EMILY's List. "From her early participation with local PTAs and the League of Women Voters, to her position in the Virginia House of Delegates, to her term in the U.S. Congress, Leslie has shown uncommon integrity, leadership and dedication. EMILY's List is proud to support Leslie Byrne in her bid to represent Virginia's 11th District."

Byrne is likely to face three challengers, including Fairfax Board of Supervisors Chairman Gerald E. Connolly, in the June 10 primary.

Democrats need a clean race on issues.

The Leslie "Ben Tribbet" Byrne campaign is already a disgrace for local democrats trying to get away from the Karl Rove/George Bush smear campaigns.

Democrats & Emily's List should be above that, but Leslie condones those personal attacks with her website links to that X-rated blog.
