Virginia Blue Wave 2019
Raising financial contributions to save or flip 20 delegate seats and 6 senate seats in 2019 in Virginia
The 20 House of Delegate districts and six State Senate districts that Democrats need to hold or flip in 2019 comprise:
- Save our ships: 8 Delegate districts progressives won last year with less than an 8% margin or less than a 9% margin with a contested primary
- Overcome the heartbreaks: 4 Delegate districts where Republicans are in office after elections with margins of less than 1%.
- Unfurl the sails: 8 other Delegate districts that Northam won in 2017 or that now trend Democratic as a result of the Bethune Hill redistricting.
- Launch the other fleet: 6 State Senate districts where Northam won or came close in 2017.
Join individuals from grassroots groups to make progressive change a reality. The campaign seeks and accepts donations from individuals only --- it does not accept donations from corporations.
Your entire donation, minus the credit card processing fee, goes to the Democratic nominees in the selected districts. It is being shared evenly, with Senate nominees receiving twice as much as Delegate nominees.
Choose among a range of levels (or other amount comfortable for you):
“Steady ripple” $16/month or $80 one-time; “Swell” $32/month or $160 one-time; “Breaker” $64/month or $320 one-time “Strong surf” $160/month or $800 one-time; “Big kahuna” $320/month or $1600 one-time; “Tidal wave” $640/month or #3200 one-time. To donate: https://secure.actblue.com/donate/vafund .

Make monthly or one-time contributions through the EveryDistrict PAC to support nominees in 20 House of Delegate districts and six State Senate districts that Democrats need to hold or flip in 2019. To donate: https://secure.actblue.com/donate/vafund .
We started to fundraise for flipping the General Assembly in 2019. This included a focus on monthly contributions, and two "boating" parties on Lake Barcroft.
The concept for this campaign evolved from a multi-candidate fundraising campaign held by grassroots groups in 2017 for 25 candidates.
