Sen. Jennifer McClellan, D-Richmond, promised no “retreat to the past” as she declared her candidacy Thursday for the Democratic nomination to become the next governor of Virginia.
The late Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., posed this very question in 1967 to the members of the Southern Christian Leadership Conference in Atlanta. His own leadership helped achieve the Montgomery Bus Boycotts, the desegregation of American schools and the Civil Rights Act of 1964. But as America stood at an inflection point, the daunting task of moving forward remained unclear.
Democratic state Sen. Jennifer McClellan has formally launched her bid for Virginia governor, pitching herself as the candidate best suited to steer the commonwealth out of crises and onto a path forward.
