FAIRFAX, VA. - Democrat Daniel Helmer, an Army veteran and Rhodes Scholar emboldened by the election of President Trump, on Tuesday announced his campaign to challenge Rep. Barbara Comstock (R-Va.).

Helmer said he has raised $120,000 — an amount he hopes will set him apart from a crowded field of candidates that is shaping up ahead of the 2018 midterm elections.

“This election evidences a loss of trust between our people and our government and a desire for new leadership and fresh perspectives,” he said Monday afternoon as his family’s cocker spaniel and English bull terrier padded around the patio of his Fairfax County home. “It’s important for America that we fix this.”
