Congresswoman Abigail Spanberger is launching a new ad today with a focus on small businesses.

In the ad, Spanberger sits down with Strangeways Brewing owner Neil Burton to talk about protecting Virginia’s economy during the pandemic. Watch below:

“I’ve heard directly from brewers and distillers like Neil about the need to prevent tax hikes and build stronger economic conditions for Virginia businesses. Especially in the face of COVID-19 and the massive challenges it has created for employers, Virginia businesses need long-term support and flexibility,” said Spanberger. “Small businesses are the backbone of our economy. They provide for thousands of working families, and they deserve someone who will fight for them — not fight for special interests. As our economy recovers and grows, I’ll keep supporting smart policies that cut burdensome red tape, help Central Virginia businesses create jobs, and make the Seventh District a stronger and more vibrant place to call home.”
