In one of their largest, and earliest, contributions the Democratic Legislative Campaign Committee has pledged $1 million to flip the Virginia House of Delegates and the State Senate in 2019. From the Washington Post:
Gov. Ralph Northam, Senate Minority Leader Richard L. Saslaw (Fairfax) and House Minority Leader David Toscano (Charlottesville) appeared with DLCC leaders in Washington as the donation was announced Monday.
“We know we have to invest early so we can have strong operations on the ground ready to recruit and train strong candidates,” DLCC executive director Jessica Post said in a tweet. “We know we must work overtime to beat Republicans on their own gerrymandered maps. Next November, we will deliver the final blow and retake the Virginia Legislature, ensuring Republicans can no longer diminish the power of a Virginian’s vote in favor of their own agenda.”
Next year all 100 seats in the House of Delegates and the 40 seats in the State Senate are up for election.
