McLEAN -- Kathleen Murphy and several Democratic lawmakers fired up a packed McLean house Wednesday night to kick off her bid for the House of Delegates. Murphy, a small business owner, former senior Congressional aide and community leader, is running for the open seat in Virginia's 34th House District, covering Fairfax and Loudon counties. Murphy assured supporters she would fight for Northern Virginia priorities including security, transportation and education.
"This isn't my election, it's ours," said Murphy. "From day one, I'll fight for what matters most to our community -- good schools, a safe place to raise our children and the infrastructure we need to grow our economy."
