TAKE THE MAJORITY: DPVA Chairwoman Susan Swecker on 2019 Virginia Primary Results

by Democratic Party of Virginia

RICHMOND, VA – Democratic Party of Virginia Chairwoman Susan Swecker released the following statement tonight following the Democratic primary in Virginia.

"We are going to make history this November. Tonight's incredible Democratic energy and unity have set the stage for the first Virginia Democratic Trifecta in 26 years.

Virginia Democrats need just a few seats in both the Senate and the House to take control of the General Assembly. This will mean common-sense gun reform, a raise in the minimum wage, protection from an Alabama-style abortion ban, increased access to health care, and a better, fairer economy for ALL Virginians.

We thank all candidates who ran in today's primary. All the candidates who participated in this process have made our Party and our democracy stronger. We have the momentum and Virginians agree with us on the issues. Now we must do the work to take the majority on November 5th."
