Friends – Every time a new president is inaugurated, all eyes turn to Virginia, whose odd-year elections have long been seen as a bellwether.
Under Donald Trump, Democrats romped to victory in those races – flipping the Virginia legislature blue for the first time in decades and setting us on a path to take down Trump himself.
Now, all 100 seats in the Virginia House will be up for grabs again next year, making it our first big test after President-elect Biden takes office.
National Republicans are eyeing key battlegrounds like Virginia for a huge comeback – and it’s up to us to stop them. It’ll take early investments to make sure our Democratic candidates are fully prepared, and we don’t have time to waste.
After a generation of GOP gerrymandering, 2021 could be the first time Virginia is decided on fair maps. Letting our guard down now, right as Republicans prepare an onslaught of negative ads, could be catastrophic.
2021 is right around the corner, and Virginia will be the state to watch. If we organize today, we can build the early, necessary infrastructure to DEFEND our majorities in Virginia and across the nation!
