Spearheaded by Post, the DLCC has spent more than $1 million to flip the General Assembly blue. The massive investment has enabled Virginia Democrats to hire experienced staff, recruit a record number of candidates and build campaign infrastructure across the state. It’s also sent a clear signal to partner organizations that Democrats could flip both chambers of the General Assembly, leading to the record donations and support seen so far this year.
Delegate Hala Ayala is running for reelection in the Prince William County-based 51st district. She was first elected in the 2017 blue wave by six points, defeating a four-term incumbent Republican and becoming one of the first Latinas elected to the Virginia General Assembly. This year, she faces a rematch with her 2017 opponent in a critical hold race as Democrats seek to flip control of the House of Delegates for the first time in two decades.
