Bolger hires award-winning staff to take back Virginia’s 10th Congressional District
FAIRFAX, VA – Attorney Richard Bolger, Democratic candidate for Congress in Virginia’s 10th District, announced today that he has assembled a formidable team of experts with whom he will work to defeat incumbent Rep. Frank Wolf (R). Bolger has retained notable names including Julian Mulvey, Scott Dworkin, Anna Greenberg, Jon Anderson, and Mike Myers.
“The people of the 10th District deserve a leader and a problem-solver as their representative. I’m extremely proud of the team we’ve put in place to achieve that goal,” said Bolger. “It is the best team that the 10th District has seen in decades.”
