    Default Everytown Spent Record $2.5 Million to Flip Virginia Red to Blue

    Democrats in Virginia have a clear path to passing a slate of anti-gun legislation, thanks in large part to Everytown for Gun Safety’s $2.5 million investment in 22 competitive races.

    The results of yesterday’s election gave Democrats majorities in both the House and the Senate, and Democratic Gov. Ralph Northam has indicated a willingness to sign whatever gun control bills the legislature cooks up.

    “Tonight, the ground has shifted in Virginia government. The voters have spoken, and they have elected landmark Democratic majorities in both the Senate and the House of Delegates,” Northam said in a statement. “[Voters] want us to finally pass commonsense gun safety legislation, so no one has to fear being hurt or killed while at school, at work, or at their place of worship. I look forward to working with our new Democratic majority to make these priorities a reality. Together, we will build a stronger, more inclusive, and more just Commonwealth.”

    In a fundraising email obtained by GunsAmerica, Everytown for Gun Safety claims to have been the largest outside investor in the state’s elections. According to CNN, the gun-control group outspent the National Rifle Association 8 to 1 in the state.

    The Bloomberg-funded group spent $1.3 million in digital and direct mail ads highlighting Virginia Republican candidate’s opposition to gun control, $538,000 in direct contributions to Democratic candidates, and $270,000 in district by district polling and battleground message testing.

    That was merely to counter all that NRA blood money that buys all the republican votes.

    Vitginia's been blue for a long time...this is not shocking news. Hasn't been red in a Presidential election since 2004.
