"I am endorsing Delegate Hala Ayala for Lieutenant Governor," said Delegate Kathleen Murphy."As a Delegate, Hala has been a powerful voice for the issues we care about. She has been an effective leader in the House of Delegates and I believe she has the skills to be a strong Lt. Governor. She will get the job done right."
“I am impressed with Hala's willingness to listen and learn and to work hard on behalf of the entire Commonwealth,” Said Mr. Milliken. “In her time in the General Assembly she has shown herself to be a real leader and I am proud to endorse her for Lieutenant Governor.”
“Although today’s decision is a step in the right direction, we have so much work to do to heal our nation and ensure everyone can feel safe in our neighborhoods and hold our police accountable. There is so much implicit bias and inequity within our institutions of justice and we must be willing to do the hard work and root out these racist policies. I look forward to continuing to build on the reforms our Commonwealth has passed and create a more just society here in Virginia.”
"I am proud to endorse Delegate Hala Ayala for Lieutenant Governor,” Said Manassas Park City Councilman Darryl Moore. “Hala is the type of leader who takes the time to listen to every voice and fight for what is right. She will be a Lieutenant Governor for all Virginians and I hope you'll join me in supporting her."
“I am so honored to receive the endorsement of the Virginia Chapter of the National Organization for Women," said Delegate Hala Ayala. "As the Founder and former President of the Prince William Chapter, NOW has been a central to my career as a women’s rights advocate. They welcomed me into their movement and have been there for me throughout my political career. With their help, I will continue to advocate for women and girls across the Commonwealth and beyond.”
Ayala knows the pain and trauma of gun violence personally. When she was 2 years old, her father was shot and murdered. She saw her mother suffer from severe PTSD as a result. That is why she has been a gun sense champion in the General Assembly since being elected in 2017. Ayala will continue to honor her father and all of the victims of gun violence through action as Lieutenant Governor.
