Video: Don Beyer’s ‘Cups’ Campaign Song

Former Virginia Lt. Gov. Don Beyer, one of the nearly dozen Democrats running for the congressional seat of Rep. Jim Moran (D), will be holding a campaign kickoff event this weekend.

In advance of the event, Beyer’s campaign released a music video — a campaign song based on the Anna Kendrick hit “Cups.” Performed in the video by middle schoolers Mae and John Keating, the children of friends of the Beyer family, the “Blue Cup Song” will also be performed live at Beyer’s kickoff event.

The event is being held at Evening Star Cafe in Alexandria from 2:30 to 4:30 p.m. on Sunday. It will launch a procession of 100 campaign events Beyer is scheduled to hold between now and the June 10 Democratic primary.

Beyer served as Lieutenant Governor from 1990-1998, served as U.S. Ambassador to Switzerland and Liechtenstein from 2009-2013, and is the co-owner of the eponymous Beyer car dealership chain.
