MANASSAS, Va. – Former marine and current Prince William County teacher Atif Qarni officially opened his campaign office in Manassas in the eastern part of the 13th district on Saturday. Located In the new Precise Auto Store at 7614 Centreville Rd, Manassas, Qarni was joined by over 60 friends, family, supporters, and Democratic Nominee for Attorney General Senator Mark Herring and Democratic House Chair Delegate Mark Sickles.

“I want to take my record of service as a Marine and my experience as a teacher to be a strong representative for the district that actually focuses on the issues that affect us every day like creating good paying jobs, reducing traffic and congestion and making sure our schools are the best they can be,” said Qarni.

Qarni is challenging Delegate Bob Marshall who is known for his efforts as a leader in the effort to restrict access to family planning services for Virginia women, while Senator Herring is facing Senator Mark Obenshain in the Attorney General race.

“The 13th District deserves a Delegate who will focus on solving problems, not on an extreme social agenda,” Senator Herring stated. “That’s why I am proud to support Atif Qarni. I know Atif will put his energy and his experience to work to do what’s right for the people of Prince William County and the people of Virginia.”

    It’s good to see someone with this man’s background running for the 13th district. Bob Marshall originally used to speak of term limits. What ever happened to that?

    Many of us are tired of Marshall’s social agenda and obsession with abortion.
