As per her website during the election, Jill portrayed herself as a doctor, not a typical politician. The website continued to imply that Jill’s experiences as a doctor will help cure the issues in Virginia. To Quote the website: “As a doctor and medical administrator, she has devoted her time and energy to improving the lives of all those under her care. In the hospital, Jill solves problems by listening to patients, analyzing data, and weighing the risks and benefits of every potential solution. Rather than shy away from challenging situations, Jill makes difficult decisions every day in order to advance the interests of the patients and families who place their trust in her. As our state senator, she will continue to devote herself to ensuring that your interests come first.”

I am disappointed with the outcome tonight. I congratulate @SenRichardBlack on his victory. Thank you to all of my supporters. #chinup
