Welcome to the official Michael Frend for Congress website. Please browse the site and learn about Michael and why he is running for Congress. Feel free to contact Michael with any questions or concerns you may have. Michael is running as an independent because he feels that both Republicans and Democrats have been unable to pass any meaningful legislation due to partisan politics. The people of the 6th Congressional District of Virginia deserve better than that. Please get to know Michael Frend and visit him in one of many Town Hall meetings to be held all over the district over the next several months.

Michael Frend endorses Jennifer Lewis for 6th Congressional seat

Now that I have stepped aside in the 6th Congressional seat race i am announcing that i fully support and endorse Jennifer Lewis as our next congresswoman for Virginia's 6th Congressional district seat. 

I have carefully looked at all candidates and find the Jennifer is the only candidate who has the experience as an advocate for people of the 6th. I know Jennifer will stand strong and not be bought by special interests or corporate interests.  She will stand firm against the NRA as she has against the pipeline. Jennifer is the one truly peoples choice candidate.  I strongly urge all of my supporters to stand with Jennifer and vote for Jennifer Lewis for Congress in the June primary election. 

She is the only democratic candidate that holds the credibility and credentials as a reliable advocate for the people. Take the time to look at Jennifer's background and you will see she is easily the right choice for the valley. No bells no whistles just true representation of the people and for the people. Jennifer just doesnt talk she does what she says.

Press Release Campaign ended 05/20/2018

The GOP has selected Ben Cline to be their candidate for the 6th. This gives the Republicans by far their best choice and best chance at victory in November.
I have worked hard to collect the needed signatures to be on the ballot in November
However after careful consideration and contemplation on the race I have come to realize exactly where i stand in the race
. I can continue in the race and garner my 2 to 10 percent of the vote. I could say I completed the race but at what cost?
I have run this race because I am a firm believer we need change in Washington. I still firmly believe that. But the fact of the matter is even if I get 10 percent of the vote I will fall well short of victory and I have not come this far for myself, or to fail.
If I continue in this election bid
I will effectively be taking as much as 10 percent of voters votes away from Democrats which in itself could lead to their defeat in November. I truly want change in Washington in November. Because of this reason and the fact that we have to have a United front for this change in November. I dont want to be the candidate that prevents change from happening. The Democrats will need every vote they can get in November. Being that I could control as much as 10 percent of that vote I want those votes to be put to good use.
Therefore to the constituents of the 6th district I was honored to have met so many of you. But the time has come for me to step aside and continue to work towards victory in November. So effective Sunday May 20th I will suspend my candidacy for the 6th district Congressional seat.
I will therefore turn my attention towards November and securing a victory for the democratic party. I am requesting that all my supporters which has grown more than I expected to support the winner of the democratic primary in a few weeks. I hope this extra support of the democratic winner will help to propel them to victory in November. I have enjoyed my run and meeting so many of you. But now it is time to focus on November and our best path to victory.
Thanks to all of you for your support during my campaign.

Republicans vote to raid social security !

Republicans have voted along party lines to again raid over 1 trillion dollars from social security. This is an outrage to our trust fund. This is NOT an entitlement program this is OUR money they are stealing.

Pledge not to accept contributions from Gas coal and oil industries

I pledge not to accept donations from oil gas coal industries. Instead prioritize the health of our families, climate and democracy over fossil fuel industry profits.

Michael Frend responds to Goodlatte praising Speaker Ryan

Ryan's achievements will not benefit Americans for generations to come. They will cost Americans for generations to come. The tax cut has proven to be the most expensive addition to our national debt in our history. Excuse me if I don't consider that a good accomplishment. Ryan is bailing because he sees the writing on the wall. I am tired of these politicians sugar coating their mistakes. Live up to them. Win or lose I am running to call these politicians out on their lies. In the GOP world Ryan may have been fine but this is the real world with real lives and real consequences.
Ryan has polarized partisanship to a new level. In 60 years I have never seen such a damning separation of parties. We the people are no more. We need our voices back. We don't need politicians to makes our decisions. We need politicians governing the will of the people not the will of the party.

Thank you for your time.
