DCCC spokesperson Jacob Peters released the following statement on the Democratic landslide victories in elections across Virginia tonight:
“Virginia is a true battlefield, and Governor-elect Ralph Northam and down-ballot candidates in every corner of the Commonwealth rode an overwhelming surge of Democratic grassroots energy to victory.
“These results echo what we have seen in every election in 2017: the enthusiasm behind Democrats is absolutely off the charts, and the establishment Republican brand is producing a powerful backlash at the polls.
“Voters have seen the Republican agenda in action – including efforts to rip away healthcare from millions of Americans and hike premiums and taxes on middle class families – and they are rejecting it outright. This energy and passion is only going to pick up speed as we head towards 2018.”
