Jody Wagner co-owns a popcorn store in Virginia Beach, selling Chunky Choco Toffee Drizzle and 22 other flavors in decorated tins. She was also the state's treasurer and secretary of finance under Virginia's two most recent Democratic governors.
Michael Signer is a national security expert from Arlington County who helped lead an insurgent campaign to topple Republican congressman Rep. Virgil H. Goode Jr. in November and this year published his first book: "Demagogue: The Fight to Save Democracy from Its Worst Enemies."
