DNC Statement on Virginia Election Results

DNC Chair Jaime Harrison released the following statement regarding the results of yesterday’s elections in Virginia:

“Terry McAuliffe, Hala Ayala, Mark Herring and Democrats down the ballot ran a tireless campaign to move Virginia forward into a brighter future and while they came up short, families across the commonwealth are better off because of their service. Make no mistake, Democrats turned out in huge numbers last night, and while it did not get the job done, Democrats across the country will not be deterred. We will get right back to work. As we say in South Carolina: while we breathe, we hope. Starting today and every single day over the next year, Democrats will remain laser focused on delivering for working families and making our case directly to each and every voter. We will not rest until the polls close next year and we know that Democrats have won the House, Senate, and governors’ mansions across the country to continue delivering hope and progress for the American people.”
