In November, Virginia elected 19 new Delegates….

In what is being termed the Trump Bump, Virginia’s House Majority Caucus experienced one of the worst and disastrous election nights in the Commonwealth’s history as 15 incumbent Republicans were relieved of their duties. Not only that, the party’s 51-49 (previously 66-34) majority power teeters on a tightrope while waiting for the completion of three recounts that if the Democrats win just one will force the House into party parity.

 

After reviewing vote totals and talking to incumbent Delegates themselves, one commonality stands out. The Democratic voters showed up to vote but not because they feel strongly about the Virginia General Assembly. Instead, they are angry at President Trump. 

 

So angry in fact, they were willing to oust long-serving and senior Delegates that comprised a diverse body of expertise and knowledge. Republicans such as Delegate John O’Bannon, also known as “Doc O’Bannon”, a doctor who served on Appropriations many feel is the most stunning loss as well as the Chairman of the House Transportation Committee, Delegate Ron Villanueva of Virginia Beach. These are just an example of the loss of talent, and loyal retail champions that will step to aside for the 2018 House Newbies.

 

Of interest to retailers, the new Democratic Delegates accepted substantial donations during their campaigns from labor union pacs and political organizations out of Northern Virginia, Washington, D.C., New York, Chicago, Philadelphia, Florida and California. For example, the Let America Vote Victory Fund, housed in Washington, D.C. receives large amounts of funding from Win Virginia who receives large donations from investment bankers and venture capitalists at firms such as Greylock Management ($300,000) based in California and Paloma Partners Advisors Inc in Florida ($100,000), according to the Virginia Public Access Project, a watchdog website. Another big player giving political contributions was CASA in Action, a nonprofit 501(c)4 organization designed for legislative and political advocacy in support of Latinos and immigrants in Maryland and Virginia.

 

While we wait for the results of the recounts to determine which party will rule over the House, here are some details on the newly  elected officials, 19 in all, that will be joining the 2018 General Assembly.

  • Delegate-elect Jennifer Carroll Foy (D) - 2nd District
