About Dan Helmer

Dan Helmer is an Army veteran of Iraq and Afghanistan and the former vice chair of VoteVets. When Dan sought the Democratic nomination in VA-10 in 2018, he messaged heavily on gun violence, gaining national attention when he demonstrated how easy it is to obtain an AR-15 by releasing body-camera video of himself buying one at a gun show. His campaign also released an ad featuring his wife, a school teacher, participating in an active shooter drill with her students. Dan and his wife, Karen, live in Fairfax, VA with their two young boys.

Giffords is proud to endorse Dan Helmer for delegate in Virginia HD-40 in 2019.
