Virginia’s hard-fought battle for its next governor has led to what will be a massive voter turnout Tuesday across the state that is now concerning Democrats who fear the state House could flip to the GOP after being under the left’s control.
The state’s House is currently 55-45 in favor of Democrats, a lead the party took in 2019. The 2021 election threatens to rock the boat and place the party’s lead in danger.

The state House position is a part-time role with an approximately $18,000 per year salary.
