DPVA Chair Swecker congratulates new Congresswomen Luria, Spanberger and Wexton
Virginia congressional delegation flips from 7-4 Republican to 7-4 Democratic
RICHMOND, VA – Democratic Party of Virginia Chairwoman Susan Swecker issued the following statement congratulating Congresswomen Elaine Luria (VA-02), Abigail Spanberger (VA-07), and Jennifer Wexton (VA-10) on being sworn into the 116th United States Congress.
“Thanks to the relentless, inspiring campaigns run by Congresswomen Luria, Spanberger, and Wexton, seven of Virginia's members of the House are from the Democratic Party. This change took years of phone calls, door knocks, and focused, service-oriented candidates like our three new Congresswomen. We are so excited they will join Senators Kaine and Warner as well as Congressmen Scott, Connolly, Beyer and McEachin in ending the Trump shutdown, increasing access to health care, fighting for the middle class, and making our Commonwealth stronger, fairer and more prosperous.”
