Legislators discuss 2018 session

Dels. Alfonso Lopez (D-49th) and Rip Sullivan (D-48th) confer at the April 4, 2018, meeting of the Arlington County Democratic Committee.

Del. Alfonso Lopez (D-49th) has been endorsed for re-election by the Virginia chapter of the Sierra Club.

“As someone who has spent much of his career working on environmental policy, I am absolutely honored to have the endorsement,” Lopez said in a statement.

“Our commonwealth has the opportunity to become a national leader on renewable energy – that’s the Virginia I’m fighting for in the House of Delegates,” he said.

Lopez earlier this year beat back a challenge from Julius Spain Sr. in the Democratic primary. He faces Independent Green challenger Terry Modglin in the Nov. 5 election; the 49th District is seen as reliably Democratic.
