*'''Choice
 +
Excerpt: "I am pro-choice. The decision to continue, or to end, a pregnancy belongs to the woman whose body hosts that pregnancy. It does not belong to the state."
 +
*'''Equality
 +
Excerpt: "Any two loving adults should be allowed to marry each other. The Marshall-Newman amendment to the Virginia constitution was the work of a mean, misguided group that used it mostly as a one-time trick to motivate certain voters to come to the polls, in the hope they’d also vote for certain candidates while they were there. I think it’s a sad thing for a state’s constitution to be amended in a way that takes liberty away from that state’s people."
 +
*'''Workers’ Rights
 +
Excerpt: "Strong unions gave America two days off in every week, instead of only one (or none). They are why our factories, dockyards, and offices are the least hazardous places to work in the world. I believe in the value and success of the American free market, with organized labor playing an indispensable role in making that market work. That’s why I oppose government intrusions on the negotiations between employers and employees."
 +
*'''Full-Day Kindergarten
 +
Excerpt: "Liz is entirely in favor of universal full-day kindergarten. Every kindergarten and first grade teacher she’s spoken to says that the need for full-day kindergarten is acute, and that the benefits of it are exceedingly apparent."
 +
*'''Environment
 +
Excerpt: "Virginia has some of the most beautiful land, mountains, lakes, and rivers in the country. Sadly, some of those have become polluted, like the Chesapeake Bay. The damage done to the bay has cost thousands of jobs and millions of dollars to our economy."
