Supporting Virginia's and our nation's police officers comes naturally to me, because it runs deep in my blood.

Before I settled and made my home here in Virginia, my family had roots in New York City -- where members on both sides served with honor in the NYPD and FDNY.

That's why, as our campaign reaches the home stretch, I'm proud to announce that I earned the endorsement of Virginia's Police Benevolent Association (the PBA).

I will always stand up for law enforcement and support policies in Congress that help them do their job and provide for their families. That's been my record, both as a federal prosecutor and a mom who wants to ensure my children grow up in a safe community.

Unfortunately, Republican Frank Wolf and I don't see eye-to-eye on this issue.

In Congress, Wolf voted for large cuts to Justice Department funding, which includes support for many law enforcement programs -- like COPS (Community Oriented Police Services) funding.ยน This directly impacts our police and their ability to put enough officers on the street and keep our communities safe.

It's just wrong, and it's why I'm running for Congress: Because Frank Wolf is out of touch with Virginia families, and because the 10th Congressional District deserves better.

With just over one month left until Election Day, I need your help right now to bring badly needed change to Congress.
