A new year and a new hat in the ring to be Virginia’s next governor.
Lee Carter, a Democratic Virginia delegate who represents part of Prince William County and the city of Manassas, is now looking to be Virginia’s next governor.
It's no secret that Virginia is divided, but it's not red vs. blue. It's the haves and the have-nots.— Lee J. Carter (@carterforva) January 1, 2021
One side has the lawyers and the lobbyists, but Virginia needs a governor that'll fight for the rest of us.

Carter, who served in the Marine Corps, was elected in 2017 to represent Virginia’s 50th District in the House of Delegates.
He’ll join a crowded Democratic field that includes Former Virginia Gov. Terry McAuliffe, Lt. Gov. Justin Fairfax, Del. Jennifer Carroll Foy and State Sen. Jennifer McClellan.
