Karina Lipsman announces campaign for Congress in Virginia's 8th Congressional District

“Our representatives in Congress have lost touch with us, even as we sit just a few miles away from the Capitol,” Lipsman said. “Inflation is the highest it’s been in 40 years. Crime is rising every month. And there are those who are trying to take away parents’ input into their children’s education. This has to stop,” she continued.

Karina Lipsman (R-Arlington) today announced her candidacy for Congress in Virginia’s 8th Congressional District, which includes Arlington County, Alexandria City, and Falls Church City, as well as parts of Fairfax County.


“Our representatives in Congress have lost touch with us, even as we sit just a few miles away from the Capitol,” Lipsman said. “Inflation is the highest it’s been in 40 years. Crime is rising every month. And there are those who are trying to take away parents’ input into their children’s education. This has to stop,” she continued.



Lipsman is the embodiment of the American dream. Her family emigrated from the former Soviet Union when she was just 8 years old. She became an American citizen when she turned 18 and put herself through college at Towson University in 3 years and graduate school at Johns Hopkins. She recently left the defense industry where she spent over a decade in the service of her country. She has lived in Arlington since 2014.


“I want to bring a fresh voice to Congress—a voice that will speak for both the working class and the white collar workers who make up this area”, Lipsman said. “People of all stripes in Northern Virginia are sick of partisan politics, higher taxes, and general incompetence with regard to our foreign policy. I intend to be their voice, and pursue solutions before politics not the voice of the entrenched political class.”
