Delegate Hala Ayala Officially Files for Lieutenant Governor’s Race

Ayala’s Campaign Submits More Than Double the Number of Required Signatures

WOODBRIDGE, VA — Delegate Hala Ayala’s campaign officially filed for the Lieutenant Governor’s race today, the first day of the filing period. Ayala’s campaign submitted more than double the required amount to qualify for the primary election on June 8th. 

“I’m so grateful for the dozens of volunteers who circulated thousands of petitions across the Commonwealth in support of our campaign for a strong future for Virginia families,” said Delegate Hala Ayala. “This is a people-powered campaign, and we are so lucky to have the support of so many incredible grassroots volunteers who believe in our vision. I’d also like to thank the thousands of voters who signed our petition and have given me the opportunity to make my case to voters. This election will be about selecting a Lieutenant Governor who understands what Virginians are facing and can build bridges and lead our Commonwealth into the future, and I am that candidate.” 

Delegate Hala Ayala is focused on earning voters’ support to become the first woman of color elected statewide in Virginia history, and will not be filing for re-election in the 51st District in the House of Delegates. Ayala has endorsed Briana Sewell in the 51st District race.  

Ayala’s campaign continues to build momentum, with recently announced endorsements from former Congressman Jim Moran, 314 Action, which focuses on electing more STEM professionals, and Higher Heights for America, which focuses on electing more Black women. Read more about Ayala’s endorsements here.
