Why you should support Flip Virginia Fund

Virginia’s House of Delegates has become more and more Republican since 1999, when the Democrats lost their majority. With 66 Republicans and 34 Democrats, the House has been able to draw gerrymandered Congressional maps that benefit Republicans, and it’s passed voting laws that suppress the minority vote. Because of lax gun control legislation, Virginia is the number one source of illegal firearms in the country. This year, the House of Delegates passed legislation to defund sanctuary cities.

How can this be, in a state that has voted blue in the past three presidential elections? Republicans have simply competed in more districts and raised more money for candidates. 

This year, we plan to change that. We’ve identified five priority flip districts with excellent Democratic candidates. We’re asking you to help us elect them.

The Flip Virginia Fund is a Virginia Political Action Committee that directly distributes funds to Democratic candidates running in flippable districts. Help us reach our goal of raising $125,000 by the Democratic primary on June 13. After the primary, we will distribute funding directly to candidates based on seat “flippability” and the funding gap between Democratic and Republican candidates.

You can learn more about our flippability model here and read about the candidates here.
