Candidates

DEMOCRATIC Candidates are Key


We are supporting state Democratic candidates where we can make a difference and help maintain the Democratic majority as well as flip seats blue in State Houses and State Senates. It's critical that Democrats show up at the polls and support candidates, up and down ballot. The candidates elected in 2021 will help ensure that redistricting after the census is fair and that the gains Democrats have made in preserving our Democracy and our rights hold. It's critical that the House and Senate be kept BLUE to ensure fairness, justice, and equity in Virginia.
