See below for a press release about Virginia Democrats nominating “one of the most diverse slates of candidates in Virginia history”: “56% of the Democratic candidates running for the Senate and 50% of those running for the House are female; 49% of Democratic candidates for both the Senate and the House are candidates of color.” Also note that this is NOT the case on the Republican side, which has a “predictable lack of diversity” – according to the WaPo, they’re “closer to 15 percent women and about 10 percent people of color”).

Democrats Nominate One Of The Most Diverse Slates of Candidates in Virginia History

RICHMOND, VA – On Monday, The Washington Post shared a profile of the historic diversity in the Democratic slate of nominees for the House of Delegates and the Virginia Senate, as well as the predictable lack of diversity in the Republican slate.

“We are so proud to have so many talented, qualified, hard-working individuals running for the House of Delegates and the Virginia Senate,” said DPVA Chairwoman Susan Swecker. “This historic slate of candidates is extraordinarily prepared and ready to serve the commonwealth because it represents all Virginians.”

56% of the Democratic candidates running for the Senate and 50% of those running for the House are female; 49% of Democratic candidates for both the Senate and the House are candidates of color.

“The Democratic slate reflects the exceptional diversity of the commonwealth,” said DPVA Press Secretary Liam Watson. “It’s crucial for the General Assembly to look like the commonwealth it represents – it’s the single best way to ensure leadership that responds to the values of Virginians.”
