In last month’s election, Democrats running for the House of Delegates outraised Republicans by 125%.
The Democrat candidate who raised the most money was incumbent Wendy Gooditis in the 10th district of the House of Delegates. She raised $3.1 million. The next nine top fundraisers were all Democrats. The Republican who raised the most money was also in the 10th district. Nick Clemente raised $1.8 million and lost to Gooditis 48.9% to 50.9%. (The good news, under the proposed redistricting Gooditis is in a very Republican district where she won’t win again.)
The chart below has some amazing numbers. Republicans were greatly outspent and yet they picked up these seats. It shows voters are tired of Democrats and their failed policies.
