We did it.
Progressives just FLIPPED the Virginia House AND Senate.
This is a win for:
✅ The #GreenNewDeal,
✅ A living wage,
✅ Getting money out of politics,
✅ Ratifying the Equal Rights Amendment,
✅ Passing gun safety legislation + more
Let’s get to work. 💪 pic.twitter.com/H1xI3MH7Aq

It is official. The AP just announced that Virginia voters voted to flip both the State House and the Senate. This is in large part because of gun safety. https://t.co/St40HOonkK

It’s not going to be the landslide that gun control advocates were hoping for, but I think they’re going to get control of the legislature in Virginia.
I expect we’ll see growing interest in the #2ASanctuary movement in the state at the county level very soon.

Just a reminder: if Democrats win back the Senate or House of Delegates in Virginia it will be a loud and clear message that black face or rapists don’t matter.
