The Shaun Broy for State Senate campaign announced today that it has clinched the Democratic Nomination for the 27th District State Senate seat currently held by incumbent Republican Senator Jill Holtzman-Vogel and a spot on the November 8, 2011 ballot.
The campaign was officially notified by a statement from the district’s nominating committee on Monday morning that states: “Shaun Broy was the only candidate that filed by the deadline for the Democratic Nomination for 27th District State Senate seat, and his filing was correct, in order and included a cashier’s check for the filing fee. Pursuant to the Democratic Party of Virginia rules, the caucus scheduled to take place on August 16, 2011 shall be canceled and we officially declare Shaun Broy as our nominee. Please notify our local constituents that Shaun Broy is our nominee,” said Suzette Matthews, Chair of the 27th Senate Nominating Committee.
The campaign that started out as an independent bid for the seat, changed course and was able to land the Democratic Nomination in just 20 days.
“I am honored to accept the Democratic Nomination for the 27th District State Senate seat. We look forward to continuing our campaign, with the firm belief that our politics must change, so that government will work again and produce better results.” Broy added “We fully expect to win this election. We are in it, to win it,”
