What is the House of Delegates?
The House of Delegates is the larger of the two state legislative bodies. There are 100 districts and 100 delegates who come together each year to create and amend the laws within the commonwealth. Currently Republicans hold 52 seats and Democrats hold 48. Prior to the 2021 elections Democrats held the majority and we saw some of the most progressive legislation in the country coming from us. If we can flip some of the battleground races, and even one or two "safe" R seats like mine, that progress will continue and become concrete in VA law.
