Delegate Irene Shin Endorses Jennifer Boysko For Congress

Shin: "At her heart, Jennifer is an organizer who cares deeply for our community."

Today, Virginia Delegate Irene Shin (D-8th District) announced her endorsement of State Senator Jennifer Boysko in her campaign for Virginia’s 10th Congressional District. Shin, who has represented Loudoun in the House of Delegates, highlighted Boysko’s deep roots in the community and her tireless work ethic.
“Jennifer Boysko has deep roots in the community and has been working for the people in this district longer than anyone else in this race,” said Shin. “At her heart, Jennifer is an organizer who cares deeply for our community and especially our neighbors who are most vulnerable.”
As a leader in the state on protecting voting rights, Shin said Boysko is who she trusts to be a voice for Virginia in Washington. “At a time when our most fundamental rights and freedoms are under attack from right-wing extremists, we need leaders like Jennifer in Congress to defend our values.”
“Working with Jennifer in Richmond, I’ve witnessed firsthand her steadfast and unwavering commitment to our community’s values. Whether it’s fighting for our fundamental right to reproductive freedom, going toe to toe with big corporations to lower healthcare costs, or defending voting rights and democracy. She is the legislator I trust and the best person in the race to represent our community in Congress,” Shin added.
“Irene is a rising star who represents the future of Virginia leadership,” said Boysko. “I’m honored to have earned her support and look forward to continuing our work together.”
Delegate Irene Shin (D-Fairfax) represents the 8th District in the Virginia House of Delegates. First elected in 2021 Delegate Shin became the first Korean American woman elected to the Virginia General Assembly. She currently chairs the Virginia Asian American Pacific Islander Caucus.


Boysko is a Virginia State Senator and the Chair of the Senate Transportation Committee. She is the only Northern Virginia Senator negotiating Virginia’s state budget where she is working to deliver $2.5 billion in new education funding, millions to save Metro, and important investments to improve mental health services and combat climate change. Senator Boysko represented as many as 200,000 residents in Loudoun County for 8 years in the General Assembly. Among her long and accomplished legislative record, this year she carried the constitutional amendment to ensure abortion access, collective bargaining, and paid family and medical leave.
