BLUE WAVE 2018!
That’s a Blue Wave! The red blob? It’s ONE precinct. Senator Tim Kaine won every other precinct in Fairfax County on November 6. That’s 243 of 244 precincts, as shown in this graphic of Election Night data analyzed by the Virginia Public Access Project (VPAP). Across Virginia, Tim Kaine won reelection, as did all of our Democratic representatives: Don Beyer, Gerry Connolly, Bobby Scott and Don McEachin. And Democrats Jennifer Wexton, Abigail Spanberger and Elaine Luria defeated three incumbents to give Virginia Democrats seven seats in Congress. For results and analysis, visit the Virginia Department of Elections website and VPAP.
THANK YOU, VOLUNTEERS!
Lee District volunteers are the best! We knocked doors here and elsewhere, and made phone calls and wrote postcards for Democrats all over Virginia and the U.S. As usual, we had 100 percent coverage—in a driving rain—at every precinct on Election Day and at our in-person absentee site, and many of our volunteers helped staff precincts in neighboring districts. Thanks so much for your efforts!
Energized by Election Day and concerned about what to do next? There’s much more to come at the local level in 2019! In the meantime, please join us for our last two events of 2018.
- Volunteer thank you party: Thursday, December 6, 7 pm, Greenspring Hunters Crossing Center
- January meeting: Wednesday, January 9, 7:30 pm, Franconia Governmental Center, 6121 Franconia Road
During 2019, Lee Dems will meet on the second Wednesday of each month at the Franconia Governmental Center, unless otherwise posted.
