At women’s summit, McClellan says she’s ‘thinking very seriously’ about gubernatorial run

State Sen. Jennifer McClellan, D-Richmond, one of scores of elected officials and candidates crowding a progressive summit over the weekend in Tysons, said she sees a political sea change on the horizon during lunchtime remarks Saturday at the third annual Women’s Summit for Political Engagement.

“Something is happening in Virginia,” McClellan said, referring to the numerous women who won state-level seats in 2017 and the influx of women of color in Congress. “We need to make sure it doesn’t just happen at the congressional level.”
