Chesterfield – Today the Pohl for Virginia campaign for State Senate was named to the Democratic Legislative Campaign Committee’s (DLCC) list of must-watch races. The DLCC selects critical races with strong candidates from across the country to highlight on its Spotlight Races page in an effort to raise awareness and resources for critical races like Amanda Pohl’s.
“The Democratic Legislative Campaign Committee is going all in on flipping Virginia blue this November — and we believe Amanda Pohl will play a crucial role in winning the State Senate ,” said DLCC Executive Director Jessica Post. “Amanda is focused on the real issues Virginians care about: improving infrastructure, protecting women’s rights, providing quality healthcare and fully-funding public schools and we’re ready to support them 100 percent with financial, data and field support.”
In 2019, the DLCC and Virginia Democrats made historic gains in the General Assembly, flipping 15 House seats. This November, they’re competing on more competitive fair House maps and completely playing offense in the Senate, where they safely hold 19 of the 40 seats.
“I’m incredibly excited to have the Democratic Legislative Campaign Committee’s support,” said Pohl .“With their help, our campaign is ready to flip the 11th district and bring better representation to the people of Chesterfield, Amelia and Colonial Heights. In Richmond, I am going to fight for better access to healthcare, more funding for public schools, and upgrading our infrastructure.
The Spotlight program encourages grassroots Democratic activists from across Virginia and the country to donate directly to candidates.
