Prior to the 2010 election, Virginia Democrats had a 6-5 majority in the US House of Representatives. After a bad election and worse GOP-controlled redistricting, we are down to 3-8. But we are fighting back and this year we have quality candidates in each Congressional District. Please support these candidates with your votes, your time, and/or your money.
