Virginia Democrats dominate fundraising heading into crucial 2018 midterms

Richmond, VA – With the November midterm elections just three weeks away, Virginia Democrats - at the statewide, congressional, and party level - crushed their Republican counterparts in Quarter 3 funds raised and hold significant leads in cash on hand.

The Democratic Party of Virginia holds an over 32:1 cash on hand advantage over the Republican Party of Virginia, Senator Tim Kaine had over 7 times as much cash on hand as Corey Stewart, and all four Democrat challengers hold a cash advantage in what have been rated Virginia's most competitive Congressional races.

DPVA Communications Director Jake Rubenstein made the following statement on Virginia Democrats' huge financial advantages heading into November.

“Virginia Democrats are crushing Republicans at every turn, whether it's fundraising, momentum, grassroots energy, or candidate quality. And most importantly, Virginia Democrats across the Commonwealth are ready to beat Republicans where it matters most - at the ballot box on November 6th.”
