Good news from the DLCC:
NEW: DLCC Announces A Total $2 Million Investment In Virginia
The DLCC sets a new record for its direct investment in this critical battleground this cycle, now at one million each for the Democratic House and Senate Caucuses
WASHINGTON – Today the Democratic Legislative Campaign Committee is announcing a total investment of over $2 million in Virginia to boost Democrats in this fall’s critical legislative elections. The DLCC was the first national organization to be on the ground in Virginia this year and the latest investments this week make the DLCC the largest direct contributor among national Democratic groups this cycle, to date, including deploying seven figures over the past two weeks alone. These investments will support the Democratic caucuses, fight back against Republicans trying to flood Virginia with money, and ensure that Democrats are getting out the vote and holding Gov. Youngkin and the GOP accountable – neighborhood by neighborhood, block by block.
The DLCC has been on the ground in Virginia since January, where our early investments helped flip a critical Senate seat and DLCC staff have been working year-round to support caucus partners in the state, helping expand capacity and execute finance and campaign plans. Our early investments have been boosted by more recent support from President Biden, the DNC, and other groups who are joining us in the fight.
“The DLCC is leading the fight this year to hold the Virginia Senate and flip the House of Delegates,” said interim DLCC President Heather Williams. “We invested early and have kept up the pace because the stakes are so high. Democrats must win in November to protect Virginians’ fundamental rights and to advance an economic agenda to grow the middle class. If we fail, Virginia will fall into the hands of unchecked Republican power and their extreme MAGA agenda will set Virginia back decades.”
“We are on a path to retake the majority in the House of Delegates thanks to the early and consistent support of the DLCC,” said House Democratic Leader Don Scott. “As we head into the final weeks of this election, we cannot let up in making our case to voters and countering the MAGA Republican spending. It’s clear that the momentum is behind us and this latest investment will help to keep it going”
“The DLCC was with us in January to flip a critical seat and their partnership has been essential for establishing and defending our majority in the Virginia Senate,” said Sen. Jennifer Boysko, Finance Chair for Senate Democrats. “This year’s elections are high stakes for ensuring Democrats can continue to hold Gov. Youngkin and his Republican caucuses accountable and we need all our supporters behind us to finish strong.”
The DLCC is the official Democratic Party committee dedicated to winning America’s state legislatures. Last year, the DLCC defied the odds by not losing any state legislative majorities, flipping four key chambers, and creating four new Democratic trifectas – the best midterm year for the party in power since at least 1934. State legislatures are the building blocks of our democracy and pass the policies that have the biggest impact on Americans’ day-to-day lives.
