by Democratic Party of Virginia

Richmond, VA — Recently released campaign finance reports show Democratic candidates for the Virginia House of Delegates continuing to dominate their Republican opponents in fundraising. Democrats increased their cash on hand by nearly $700,000 from June and collectively out-raised Republicans by over $1.3 million. 

Democratic candidates now have a collective cash on hand advantage of nearly $4.9 million. With Democrats competing in a record number of districts this year, these fundraising numbers are proof that Democrats will have the resources they need to win across the commonwealth. 

Democratic House Candidates
Raised - $3,198,388
COH - $9,812,302

Republican House Candidates
Raised - $1,828,312
COH - $4,914,945

“With a major fundraising advantage this year and time running out for the GOP, House Democrats remain in their strongest position heading into a general election in years," said DPVA Communications Director Grant Fox. “Under Democratic leadership, Virginia was named the best state for business twice in a row as Democrats expanded voting rights, made health care more affordable, raised the minimum wage for the first time in a decade, and put us on the path to a strong pandemic recovery. These latest numbers make it clear that Virginia voters want to continue that progress.”
