The Richmond Times-Dispatch is reporting a large jump in the number of members in Democratic committees across the state, except for Richmond. This surge began after Trump was elected. Democrats are VERY motivated this year.
The Prince William County Democrat committee had 130 members in October, they now have 300, with 150 to 175 attending monthly meetings. In Fairfax County, the numbers are even more striking. Their membership in the Democratic committee jumped from 800 to 1,300. In Virginia Beach, their Democrats membership went from 60 or 70 to 160 with 40 more pending. In Henrico, their committee has grown from 108 to 250 with 40 applications pending. Richmond Democrats seem to be the only committee with no growth.
This year Republicans have a great ticket, Ed Gillespie for Governor, Jill Vogel for Lt. Governor and John Adams for Attorney General. Electing these three will change Virginia, reduce our taxes and increase our liberties. All three of these candidates are working very hard, constantly crisscrossing the state. But it’s going to be an uphill battle because of Trump’s election. As Republicans, we need to join our local committees and work hard to elect our wonderful Republican ticket. Our candidates are doing their part, we need to do our part. We must win this year and beat Tim Kaine next year.
