Let’s take back the majority in the Virginia General Assembly! We need to elect more Democrats to make progress on many critical issues -- everything from gun violence prevention to environmental protection, healthcare, civil rights, voting rights, women's rights, and other issues. So let's finish the Blue Wave we started in 2017! Your support for the 2019 state House of Delegates and state Senate elections will be critical - even more than in 2017, because there will be no statewide candidates to attract funding and get voters to the polls.
We are asking you to make monthly or one-time contributions through the EveryDistrict PAC to support nominees in 20 Delegate districts and six State Senate districts that Democrats need to hold or flip in 2019.
Please join individuals from several grassroots groups (WofA, Network NOVA, Nope!, VADF, Arlington Action, and others) to make progressive change a reality. The campaign seeks and accepts donations from individuals only --- it does not accept donations from corporations.
Save our Ships
The 8 Virginia House of Delegate districts where progressive candidates won their races in 2017 with less than a 8% margin or less than a 9% margin with a contested primary: Districts 10, 21, 50, 51, 68, 72, 73, and 85.
Overcome the Heartbreaks
The 4 Virginia House of Delegate districts currently held by Republicans after after elections with margins of less than 1% in 2017 but won by Governor Ralph Northam: Districts 27, 28, 40, and 94.
Unfurl the Sails
Eight Delegate districts with Republican incumbents, including five where Northam won in 2017 plus three (marked with**) that now trend Democratic as a result of the Bethune Hill redistricting. [Note: Distributions to these 3 will await confirmation by Supreme Court]: Districts 62, 66**, 76, 81**, 83, 84, 91**, and 100.
Launch the Other Fleet
The 6 Virginia State Senate Districts currently held by Republicans that Governor Ralph Northam won in 2017: Districts 7, 8, 10, 12, 13, and 17.
Three current progressive incumbents in Delegate districts who won by more than 8% but less than a 10% margin, and who don’t face a contested primary or caucus. Included in original campaign design and receiving an initial allocation of $500 each but not further automatic allocations, in order for VA Blue Wave 2019 campaign to add the three delegate districts that have become flippable as a result of the Bethune Hill redistricting.
Set it and forget it.
Select a monthly donation amount for Democratic nominees in selected key districts that will accumulate to a significant stash between now and June 2019. The Act Blue site will be temporarily suspended and no new donors accepted during the January-March 2019 regular session of the General Assembly.
Your donation will be shared evenly among the Democratic nominees for these districts, except that Senate districts are allocated twice as much as Delegate districts due to their larger population. With a total of 6 State Senate districts and 20 House of Delegate districts, the suggested donation amounts are in multiples of 32 [i.e.,(20*$1)+(6*$2)].
No OVerhead Costs.
Your entire donation, minus the Act Blue processing fee (3.95%), will go to the Democratic nominees in the selected districts. All design and other operational costs are covered by volunteers.
