WOW! Election Night Triumphs for Democrats!

Congratulations to All Democrats on an Amazing Election Night!

Results like this don’t just happen--it took the hard work of Democratic volunteers to “Get Out the Vote” and deliver this stinging repudiation of Trumpism and the Republicans!

Our GOTV efforts brought these victories up and down the ballot:

  • Ralph Northam won a resounding 9-point victory (54% to 45%) to become the new Governor of Virginia. Democrats also swept the state-wide races for Lt Governor and Attorney General by similar margins.

  • Democrats flipped an astounding 14 seats in the VA House of Delegates. With results still pending, Democrats have a strong shot at doing the impossible and taking back the majority in the VA State House.

    • Five seats still too close to call--and our overseas ballots will be the deciding factor!
    • Only 69 votes defeated the Chair of the VA House Republican caucus. Every vote counts!
  • Phil Murphy won a huge 13-point victory (55% to 42%) as Governor of NJ, giving Democrats a new “trifecta” with control of NJ state government. And as the icing on the cake, Democrats also flipped a NJ State Senate seat.

  • Manka Dhingra's resounding 11-point victory (55% to 44%) in WA’s State Senate race gives Democrats control of WA State Senate and another new “trifecta” with control of the WA State government. WA Democrats can now implement progressive measures that were stymied by Republicans in the State Senate

  • Democrats lost only one election as Dr. Kathie Allen was defeated in her race for the Utah 3rd Congressional District race.

And in other races around the US on November 7th:

  • Maine overwhelmingly approved (59%) the Obamacare Medicaid expansion, overturning Republican Gov LePage refusal to provide health insurance to 80,000 low-income residents.

  • Progressive women won both Michigan State Legislature Special Elections.

  • In Montana, a former refugee from Liberia was elected mayor of Helena, the first African-American mayor in Montana

  • In Missouri, an African-American woman won Special Election to the State House.

  • In Georgia, Democrats picked up two State House seats.

  • In NH, Democrats won the two special elections for State House, flipping one seat, and Manchester, the largest city, elected a Democratic mayor for the first time in 14 years

  • In PA, Philadelphia elected Larry Krasner, a civil rights lawyer who pledged to combat justice system inequalities, as District Attorney

Since Trump’s election, Democrats have flipped 21 state legislative seats--and we’re just getting started! Democrats Win When Democrats Vote!
