“Yesterday, I was incredibly honored and proud to be elected as the first Iranian and Muslim-American from Virginia to serve on the Democratic National Committee! I can’t begin to express how humbled and thankful I am for the support I received not only from my Sanders family but my dear friends in the Hillary caucus. We did this together — I’m amazed that our campaign garnered more votes (1,070!) than any other candidate, including the incumbents.

Thank you for believing in me and standing by my side. I’m excited to be able to work the next four years on behalf of Virginians on the Democratic National Committee and prepared to take our message and fight for progressive policies to the DNC!” ‪#‎VADemsUnited‬
