After thoughtful consideration I have decided to withdraw from the race for the Democratic nomination for the U.S. House of Representatives seat in Virginia’s 1st congressional district. I make this decision because it has become increasingly clear that my personal and family commitments, including my full-time responsibilities as an engineering consultant, require my full attention and would not allow me the time necessary to conduct a proper, winning congressional campaign.

I want to sincerely thank my family and the many volunteers and supporters that provided me with their time, energy, encouragement, ideas, and donations without which I would not have made it this far.


My campaign will be providing 100% refunds to those contributors that provided donations to my campaign.


No more donations are being accepted.
