Morgan Griffith is the incumbent for Virginia’s 9th congressional district.] He’s been in the position since 2011.
Anthony Flaccavento thanked everyone who was at his watch party because he says he ran a grassroots campaign and had a lot of people working with him on it.
Flaccavento hit over 100 town halls throughout the southwest Virginia area. And even on election day, he made a wide sweep to go to different polling sites from Salem, to Roanoke, Christiansburg, Blacksburg, Radford, then ended in Washington County.
He said he didn’t just go to the meetings to meet people, he was listening to them and collecting data.
“In the midst of getting back to my regular life, I have every intention of sitting down and talking to with the thousands of people who worked on this campaign to figure out what we do to build on that positive energy, that sense of connection, that sense of possibility that we can build a better 9th district together,” said Flaccavento.
“So I’m not sure how we’re going to do that, but I’m definitely committed to talking with folks about how to do it.”
He mentioned that he does not plan on running again in two years, but he is not giving up the hope he has for the democratic party to win the 9th district.
