Last night, Ralph Northam and Democrats down the ballot won big across Virginia. Now, for the first time since 1991, Virginia will have a Democratic governor with the power to veto unfair maps during the next redistricting cycle.
But our work is far from over. If you add up the total votes across Virginia for the House of Delegates, Democrats beat Republicans 53%-44%, but a 50/50 split for seats won seems likely. It takes a massive wave for Democrats to overcome the gerrymandered maps that GOP drew in 2011. We have to fix this broken system.
