Why We Support Her
As Majority Leader, Longhurst has been a powerful voice for working-class Delawareans, especially women. She has sponsored legislation that requires equal pay for equal work, regardless of gender on any state contract and made it illegal for employers to keep employee wages secret -- another way she's working to close the wage gap.
Longhurst also was instrumental in orchestrating the deal to redevelop the Port of Wilmington, a $580 million project that will create hundreds of good-paying union jobs.
Our choice is clear, and we choose Valerie Longhurst.
