Democrats Flip House and Senate!
Virginia continues to lead the nation with sweeping
Democratic victories in our off-year elections!
November 5, 2019, Virginia flipped both the House and Senate to Democratic control. For the first time in more than 2 decades, the legislature will be led by Democrats, including our Speaker-elect, Delegate Eileen Filler Corn, the first woman to hold the role of Speaker in our 400 year history, and our first female and first African American Majority Leader- Elect Delegate Charniele Herring!
What that really means is now we can protect women's health and civil rights, invest in schools, pass the ERA and sensible gun laws. We can set the stage for the country in 2020.
Overall, we picked up six seats in the House, giving us 55 seats to the Republican's 45 come January. In the Senate, we flipped two seats, taking the balance to 21 Democrats, 19 Republicans.
