Last night, there was a woman named Linda making the rounds at the Loudoun County Democratic Committee introducing herself as “Tom’s mom.” Although she appeared to be on the shy side, it quickly became apparent that she was very proud of her son — Tom Perriello.
Linda not only worked the room prior to the meeting for her son’s campaign, but she then went on to speak to the crowd for about seven minutes about why she thinks he’ll make an excellent governor. I think it’s worth watching her speech for several reasons.
First, it’s always interesting to hear why someone besides the candidate is supporting someone’s campaign. Secondly, how often do you actually get to hear from the candidate’s mother during a campaign? And finally, she breaks it down into three points as to why she believes you should vote for Tom Perriello in the primary on June 13.
