Feder Wins VA 10th District

Judy Feder won the Democratic primary for Virginia’s 10th district Tuesday night. Feder received 62% of the vote, according to Northern Virginia Daily, giving her a decisive victory over challenger Mike Turner. She will face Republican incumbent Frank Wolf for in the general election.

In a district and state that appear to be continuously moving from red to blue, Feder offers an attractive slate of change to the voters of northern Virginia. In her 2006 bid for Congress, she gave Wolf his biggest electoral challenge in 24 years, proving the strength of her candidacy.

"The GOP is on notice; the status quo is not acceptable," said Feder, according to a recent press release on her website. "The voters are ready for change in 2008."

Feder, a professor and former dean of Georgetown’s Public Policy Institute, is a nationally renowned expert in health policy, a feminist and a firm supporter of reproductive rights. She has been endorsed by both the Feminist Majority PAC and the National Organization for Women, among others.
