WASHINGTON (Map, News) - Republican delegate nominee Faisal Gill said a voter recently asked him about his Muslim faith, saying, “At the end of the day, you are going to vote for your people?”

“Which people?” Gill responded, saying that many Northern Virginia Muslims are Democrats and that he is often on the other side of issues. During a bruising campaign for an open seat in Prince William County’s competitive 51st District, Gill said he has embraced the responsibility of explaining his faith on the campaign trail.
