Del. Sam Rasoul
District 11 - Roanake
“Progressives are only as strong as the teams that they work in. I have been in the House when there were only 36 Democrats and knew what it was like to be down big, but thanks to new Progressive members like Delegate Samirah, we have been able to progress our caucus further than ever before. I run my campaign on the 3 principles of truth, love, and grit and I feel Ibraheem fits that mold well. Whether it’s the Green New Deal or Campaign Finance Reform, he has been there standing with me on the front lines and I need to keep him there with me as we move onto the next chapter of Commonwealth.”
Del. Joshua Cole
District 28 - Fredericksburg
“Delegate Samirah and I have done a lot of work over the past 2 years. We have been standing up for workers, working on a Green New Deal, and making sure that our campaigns are financed by people, not Big Corporations. You all have to send Ibraheem and myself back to the House so we can finish the job. As the youngest members of the General Assembly, we are planning on sticking around for a long time and we are just getting started.”
Del. Kaye Kory
District 38 - Falls Church
“We need the next generation of leaders in the House of Delegates to help us move forward. I have seen how hard Delegate Samirah works to make sure that all of us in the House are focusing on things like healthcare, housing, environmental issues, and issues that all of us in Northern Virginia care about, while not leaving the rest of the Commonwealth behind. I am asking you to return Ibraheem back to the House so we can maintain our majority and continue our good work together.”
Del. Paul Krizek
District 44 - Alexandria
“Virginia benefits greatly from those who stand in solidarity with Labor and our workers. That’s what I told Delegate Samirah when he came into the House of Delegates and as a Labor leader in the House, I can tell you Ibraheem doesn’t just talk the talk, but walks the walk on these policies. We are at an incredibly important moment for our workers with the PRO Act working its way through Capitol Hill and Virginia working to repeal our so-called ‘Right to Work Laws.’ I need you to send myself and Ibraheem Samirah back to the House so that we can finish the job on these bills.”
Del. Patrick Hope
District 47 - Arlington
“We need representatives who are not afraid to stand up to protect the health of our constituents. I have seen first hand how Delegate Samirah does just that. We have been workington together on moving toward a Universal Single Payer Healthcare system here in Virginia and I need you to return him to Richmond so we can finish what we started. If COVID-19 has taught us anything, we cannot take medical professionals in the legislature for granted. Vote for Ibraheem this June! ”
Del. Suhas Subramanyam
District 87 - Ashburn
“The best way to improve our Commonwealth is to make sure that we have regional cooperation and I cannot think of anyone better to be representing the neighboring district than Delegate Samirah. Ibraheem and I both represent diverse parts of Loudoun, and we reflect that in our values down in the House. I am asking you to send Ibraheem and myself back to the House of Delegates this year so that we can continue to deliver effectively for all Virginians.”
Del. Shelly Simonds
District 94 - Newport News
“A healthy democracy is so incredibly important to Virginia. I know that one more than most. I have been so pleased with the work that we have done in the majority and one person who has been there every step of the way since I was sworn in has been Delegate Samirah. His work on Affordable Housing, Inclusionary Zoning, and Campaign Finance Reform has been so incredibly important and we need him to come back to Richmond to continue the fight. Please send Delegate Samirah and I back to the House so that we can keep at it!”
Cesar del Aguila
Herndon Vice Mayor
“As the Vice Mayor of Herndon, I know what the future holds for the town, while not staying in the past. We have a diverse and accepting community here that serves a population of so many races, faiths, and backgrounds. That is why I support Ibraheem because he knows what the town of Herndon needs: quality, affordable housing that will allow for our residents to thrive in our community. He focuses on how he can help the most burdened among us, especially those who do not have a seat at the table. I look forward to his continued service to the town of Herndon in the General Assembly.”
Herndon Town Council Member
“Herndon needs a Delegate who will listen to the local leaders and the problems that our residents are facing. Delegate Samirah has been readily available to help those who are desperately in need of our help during the pandemic: from issues with Medicaid coverage to unemployment benefits. He is a dedicated public servant with compassion and empathy for his constituents. Even though it is not always in the public eye, he continues to work tirelessly to serve through his constituent services to Herndon. I am so pleased to be supporting him in his re-election.”
Herndon Town Council Member
“We are so proud of Delegate Samirah. He has represented us very well. Ibraheem is full of energy, enthusiasm and can do attitude.

We look forward to the great work he is doing.”
Herndon Town Council Member
“Delegate Samirah brings a young, vibrant breath of fresh air to our town’s representation. His energy and his passion are what the town of Herndon deserves to have in their Delegate. He continues to fight and stand up for what is right, even when it is not the most popular opinion. Ibraheem has a long way to go in his career and I continue to support his service and his reelection to the House of Delegates.”
“Our commonwealth is on a path TO HISTORIC CRIMINAL JUSTICE REFORM and it’s delegates like Delegate Samirah WHO are helping us get there. I know that Ibraheem will stand on the side of justice, NO MATTER THE COST. I am supporting Delegate Samirah for re-election because we need staunch progressives who have a record of fighting for what’s right even when it’s not convenient”
“The work that the General Assembly has done these past 2 years have made it much easier to be a reformer in the Commonwealth’s Attorney’s office. We want to make sure that we are going after true justice that is based on our values and that can only be achieved with the help from our champions in the Virginia Legislature. I know in my heart of hearts that the person to help us in Loudoun County is Delegate Samirah and I am asking you to send him back to the legislature.”
Supervisor Koran Saines
Loudoun Board of Supervisors Vice Chair, Sterling District
“All politics is local and when we have progressive people at the table, we get results by the pressure they put on. Ibraheem continues to deliver for the people of Loudoun County and the people of Virginia. From Healthcare to Public Transportation, Delegate Samirah works with us at the local level to make sure the solutions that are being brought up will work for everyone in our community. I look forward to helping re-elect Delegate Samirah because we need to have our dedicated Progressives down in Richmond.”
Supervisor Juli Briskman
Loudoun Board of Supervisors Algonkian District
“I know what it’s like to stand up to Trump and that is a bond that I share with Delegate Samirah. We both risked a lot when standing up and speaking out against hatred and bigotry. It wasn’t about grabbing headlines. It was about speaking truth to power. That’s what Loudoun County deserves in a Delegate. Someone who is not afraid to do the right thing in the face of adversity. Someone who will listen to the local leaders and speak openly about the problems they are facing. That is why I am endorsing Ibraheem for re-election”
Dr. Babur Lateef
Prince William School Board Chair, Healthcare Provider
“Both as a doctor and an elected official, I know how a medical background is a great advantage for my constituents. That’s why I believe the Delegate Samirah is the right candidate for the 86th District. During a time of a pandemic, we need to have more doctors in office so that we can ensure health justice for every Virginian. Join me in supporting Ibraheem for another term in the House of Delegates.”
Loudoun County School Board
“All politics is local and when we have progressive people at the table, we get “Our schools and our students are hurting, and they have been for some time. Leaders like Delegate Samirah understand that more than most. Ibraheem went as far as to dedicate one of the restricted number of pieces of legislation to improving our education system and that is admirable in my eyes. We need someone who will stand up for both our students and educators in Richmond, and that to me is Delegate Samirah. Let’s work together to re-elect him in June.”
Fairfax County School Board
“Folks, we need to return Delegate Samirah to Virginia’s General Assembly. He is working on issues that matter to everyday people like us like affordable housing here in Northern Virginia and quality, affordable healthcare for all. He is responsive to his constituents and as an elected official myself, he is the member I rely on most for our joint constituents when it comes to public education and what’s best for families, especially this past year. I am thrilled to support Delegate Ibraheem Samirah on his next bid for re-election to the General Assembly.”
Prince William County Soil & Water Conservation Board
“Ibraheem is a great friend and an even better representative of his district. It’s incredibly important to me to raise the voices of our diverse communities in the 86th and I am so glad to have him ny my side doing the same thing. Let’s continue to deliver on our shared vision for Virginia!”
Dr. Eric Feigl-Ding
“If this pandemic has taught us anything, it’s that we need more healthcare providers in office. As a public health advocate and a former candidate myself, I know that the only way to tackle healthcare policy is to turn to the ones who deal with it everyday. Delegate Samirah’s medical expertise and his plans to work towards a single-payer healthcare system in an effective way prove that he is the right person to continue this work in Virginia. I am so enthusiastic about supporting him in this campaign.”
