We did it!
The Virginia legislature is blue thanks to the voters and a great volunteer effort to get out the vote and inform the electorate. A huge thank you to all our Lean Lefters who texted, canvassed, called, wrote postcards, fundraised, & gave to our candidates. Voter turnout was high and our candidates John Bell and Hala Ayala won their races while Larry Barnett’s race appears headed for a recount (fingers crossed, Larry!). The Virginia Democrats are poised and ready to end Republican gerrymandering, pass gun safety laws and expand voting rights in this important swing state!
In 2019 Lean Left:
- knocked on 1077 doors
- wrote 12,300 postcards
- wrote over 7000 post-its for canvassers
A big shout out to our dedicated canvassing team for all their Virginia door knocking. Ann Smith, Ginny Sassaman, Marilyn Bush, Brian Sheldon, Susan Brace, and Carol Vassar – you rock!
|Lean Left Vermont is already busy strategizing for 2020 and will have new races and candidates to support for that very important election season.|
Stay tuned for all the details.
In the meantime, enjoy these pictures of Lean Lefters working on the 2019 campaigns!
