Progressive Turnout Project Congratulates Jennifer Wexton on Virginia Primary Victory
Progressive Turnout Project Executive Director Alex Morgan released the following statement regarding the Virginia Democratic primary:
“Congratulations to Jennifer Wexton on tonight’s victory in Virginia’s tenth congressional district. Progressive Turnout Project already has staff on the ground in Sterling and looks forward to doing everything we can to hold Republicans like Barbara Comstock accountable on November 6.”
“The Blue Wave started right here in Virginia. Last year, our $600,000 investment in field program across 10 House of Delegate districts resulted in significant increases in voter turnout so we’re going to replicate that in the tenth congressional district this November.”
“Voters are making it clear they’re ready to ‘Dump Comstock’ and I can’t think of a better choice than Jennifer Wexton. Virginians deserve a fighter like Jennifer who will protect their access to affordable healthcare and stand up to the NRA.”
“In order to take back the House and the Senate, it’s critical that Democrats invest in states like Virginia. With Tim Kaine and Jennifer Wexton on the ballot, we have great confidence that we will win big in November.”
Last year PTP ran successful voter-turnout programs in five Northern Virginia House of Delegate districts. PTP programs helped elect Democratic Delegates Jennifer Carroll Foy, Danica Roem, Elizabeth Guzman, Kathy Tran, and Lee Carter.
Progressive Turnout Project announced an $8 million program investment that includes Virginia’s tenth congressional district. The organization has an office and staff based in Sterling.
Progressive Turnout Project is a grassroots-funded Political Action Committee with a single mission: get Democrats to the polls. PTP designs, tests, and executes specialized voter-turnout programs targeting inconsistent Democratic voters in the most competitive districts across the country. Since its inception in 2015, the organization raised more than $16 million with a supporter base of over 2.6 million and invested in voter-turnout programs in 26 congressional races and 17 state legislative races, including 10 Virginia House of Delegate races 2017.
