Candidates Courting Muslim Voters In Northern Virginia
by Michael Pope
At the Dar AlNoor Community Center in Manassas, Va., thousands of Muslims gathered for Eid, the end of Ramadan, and so have about a dozen candidates for office. Safiya Samman of Woodbridge says every year, more and more candidates come to the community center to court an increasingly important voting bloc.
"The Muslims are really part of the American structure, and they are citizens of this country, and we feel very much American," says Samman.
Republican Del. Mark Dudenhefer came to the center asking for votes.
