Rep. Barbara Comstock’s (R-VA) re-election campaign released a new ad highlighting Comstock’s work to combat sexual harassment in the workplace.

The ad, which is titled, “The First One,” features Melissa Richmond telling her story about how Comstock believed her when she told Comstock a congressman sexually harassed her.

“When a congressman invited me to his house alone late one night to discuss my internship, I declined and the internship disappeared,” Richmond said. “When I came forward to share my story, the first person to support me was Barbara Comstock.”

“She believed me – and she stood with me. Barbara is a fighter for women – and she is working across the aisle to stop this kind of abuse of power. She’s passed landmark legislation to combat sexual harassment in Congress, with zero tolerance, no more secret settlements, and no taxpayer bailouts for predators,” Richmond continued.

Richmond then highlighted Comstock’s extensive work to introduce legislation to combat sexual harassment in the workplace.

“We are at a pivotal time women are stepping forward to claim their equal power at home, in the workplace, and in government, and it takes a leader like Barbara Comstock who can work across the aisle to create change for women on important issues like sexual harassment,” Richmond concluded.
