Josh Cole made history in 2017 as the first African-American and the youngest person to be nominated for the 28th District. After coming just 73 votes shy of flipping this district, he is back to fight for progressive causes, including affordable college, criminal justice reform, a $15 minimum wage, and affordable housing for all. Josh is excited to move Virginia forward with innovative ideas.
