WASHINGTON - Rep. Elaine Luria released a campaign video Monday centered around the impeachment process against President Donald Trump underway in the U.S. House of Representatives.

In the video, Luria recites the Oath of Offices, points to her decades of military service and dives into her being a part of the impeachment process.

The campaign ad uses media clips and original video and voiceover to promote her reasoning for supporting impeachment and why she believes she is doing the right thing. This includes clips from a town hall meeting held in Hampton Roads.

In a tweet featuring the ad, Luria states, "Donald Trump didn’t uphold his oath, but I intend to uphold mine. Serving in Congress and 20 years in the Navy, I've sworn an oath to support and defend our Constitution seven times. It's an obligation I take seriously."

Luria has been a proponent of impeaching of President Trump for a while now and was one of the first members of Congress from Virginia to do so.

Luria defeated former Rep. Scott Taylor in 2018, allowing the Democrats to take hold of Virginia's 2nd Congressional District. Taylor has already decided to aim for the U.S. Senate seat currently held by Democrat Mark Warner.

Later Monday, Ben Loyola announced he is vying for the Republican nomination for the 2nd District.
