Lots of signs identifying the building as the Northumberland Democratic Campaign Office. The office is open Friday, Saturday and Sunday, 12:00 noon to 7:00 PM.

On the evening of July 18, a group of citizens from Northumberland, Westmoreland, King George and Prince William counties demonstrated on the lawn of the Westmoreland County courthouse, Montross, to call attention to Rob Wittman’s absence from the District, and, Trump’s cooperation with Valdimir Putin.
Demonstrators were on the courthouse lawn from 7:00 to 9:00 PM. Many people driving by slowed to read the signs then either honked or gave “thumbs-up” in support.
On November 5, 2018 we in Virginia will vote for all eleven of our members of the House of Representatives and for one of our Senators. Below you will see the order that names appear on the ballot.

For example, in Congressional District 1, you will see the names of Wittman (R; incumbent) and Williams (D) in the House race, and, Stewart (R), Kaine (D; incumbent) and Waters (L) in the Senate race.
