NORFOLK, Va. - Norfolk City Councilmember Andria McClellan announced on Tuesday that she is entering the Democratic race to be the next Lieutenant Governor of Virginia.

The press release said, McClellan believes all Virginians deserve equal opportunities.

“The last four years have seeded a divide in our country and in our Commonwealth. Every day more families in Virginia are hurting from the physical, emotional and economic impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic. Nationally, we are on a new path to bring our country together and rebuild our economy in a way that works for everyone, not just a select few. That same hope for opportunity for all must be a top priority in Virginia,” said McClellan. “We need a Virginia that provides access to opportunity for everyone -- no matter the color of your skin, your zip code, who you love or how you identify. This is why I am running to be the next Lieutenant Governor of Virginia.”

The press release said McClellan's campaign is based around five key issues:

  • Access to affordable health care,
  • Access to a good paying job,
  • Access to quality education,
  • Access to high-speed internet; and,
  • Access to a clean & sustainable environment.

McClellan has served as a member of Norfolk City Council representing Superward 6 since 2016.
