NextImg:DNC invested over $1 million into Virginia legislature races at Biden's direction

President Joe Biden has directed the Democratic National Committee to invest over $1 million in Virginia ahead of the state's legislative races, where the majority of both chambers is up for grabs.

According to the Washington Post, Biden asked the DNC this week to pour the money into the race to combat Gov. Glenn Youngkin's (R-VA) historic investment in the races. The DNC will invest an additional $1.2 million into the race, bringing the total investment up to $1.5 million.

The election is on Nov. 7 and will determine whether or not Virginia will be able to enact conservative priorities. They currently have a slim majority in the House, and Democrats have a narrow majority in the Senate. Youngkin has devoted a significant amount of money and time this year trying to expand that majority in the House and attempting to win the Senate.

“The Democratic National Committee’s significant investment in Virginia underscores that the stakes could not be higher this November,” Sen. Tim Kaine (D-VA) said in a statement to the Washington Post. “If Republicans win control of the General Assembly, they’ve pledged to restrict voting rights, pass an abortion ban, and roll back gun safety measures.”

The election also comes amid heavy speculation that Youngkin could enter the 2024 Presidential Race as a consensus candidate for Republicans who don’t like former President Donald Trump. Speculation has increased in recent months as Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis has failed to cut into Trump’s lead.

Youngkin has continually dodged questions about 2024 when asked about it, saying he is focused on winning the majority in the Senate and House.
