Beyer Statement On Jennifer Wexton

Rep. Don Beyer (D-VA) issued this statement today after Rep. Jennifer Wexton announced she would not seek re-election following a recent medical diagnosis:

“Congresswoman Jennifer Wexton is a kind and generous person, a devoted advocate for her constituents, and a fighter for the underprivileged across the country and around the world. I am proud to know her and serve with her, and to call her a friend.

“When Jennifer joined the House five years ago her future seemed limitless. Now she has been robbed of much of that future with medical news that is tragic and deeply unfair. As Jennifer continues to serve her constituents, she will have my friendship and support, along with that of so many others.

“Megan and I send our love and best wishes to Jennifer and Andrew, their sons, and the rest of their family, now and always. We are in your corner, Jennifer.”
