A Democrat running for reelection in Virginia’s 2nd Congressional District has released a “devastating” ad targeted at President Trump’s abuse of the constitution.
Elaine Luria served the U.S. in uniform for 20 years, joining the Navy when she was 17. In 2014 she commanded a combat-ready unit of 400 sailors as Commanding Officer of Assault Craft Unit TWO, before retiring in 2017.
She beat Republican Scott Taylor for Virginia’s 2nd Congressional district seat in 2018 by a narrow margin. Now she is launching her reelection campaign with a powerful new ad.
Watch Luria fight for the Constitution below:
.@realDonaldTrump didn’t uphold his oath, but I intend to uphold mine.
Serving in Congress and 20 years in the Navy, I’ve sworn an oath to support and defend our Constitution seven times. It’s an obligation I take seriously. https://t.co/uIRq6RIJR1 pic.twitter.com/aqneKspW27

As one Virginia Democratic strategist tweeted, “this ad is absolutely devastating for Senate Republicans.”
