From the Politico article:

One of the DSA’s members running for office this November is Lee Carter, a former U.S. Marine and self-described socialist who is challenging the GOP whip in Virginia’s state House…

…But the local chapter of the DSA has made Carter’s race a priority.Once it endorsed his campaign, the group started mobilizing its members to canvas Carter’s district on his behalf. ‘We’ve managed to knock on tens of thousands of doors,’ says Carter.

But the creepiest thing about Carter’s not-so-hidden anti-American ideology is that the Democrats in Virginia clearly do not care:

From Carter’s website:

“He is an active member of the Manassas City Democratic Committee, and spends much of his time working as a community organizer and activist — particularly in the areas of affordable housing and worker protections. He is also a graduate of the Sorensen Institute of Political Leadership. The Carter family are involved members of the Bull Run Unitarian Universalists congregation in Manassas.”

American University College Democrats mobilized to make calls on campus for Carter:

And the Fairfax Democrats, including Former Congressman Tom Perriello, also lent their support:
