Josh for Virginia
The Democratic Party has nominated Josh Throneburg, an ordained minister from a small farming community and dad of two young girls, to represent Virginia's Fifth Congressional District. Josh is fighting for a better tomorrow by taking on the climate crisis, reinvesting in our small towns, and dismantling systems of oppression.
As shown in this map, the 2021 redistricting has moved all of Powhatan to the Fifth Congressional District. This district is currently represented by a Republican, but with your help we can flip it. Get involved today!
