Democratic donors are going big on stopping Gov. Glenn Youngkin from taking control of the Virginia legislature.
The States Project is investing more than $4.5 million in next month’s Virginia legislative races, building on its successful investment to flip several statehouses in 2022.
Democrats control the Virginia Senate by a 22-18 majority, and Republicans hold the House by a similarly slim margin.
Winning a majority in both chambers could set the stage for a Democratic trifecta in 2025, with big-name Democrats already looking at running for governor.
Democrats are worried, though, that it’s equally possible that Youngkin could win a trifecta of his own in November.
