This is big news. Today, the Cook Political Report upgraded our race from “Toss Up” to “Leans Democratic.” It’s hard to overstate just how big of a deal this is. The Cook Report is one of the most highly respected, independent reports predicting elections in the country. While this ratings change is great news, it is no guarantee we will win in November.
Barbara Comstock has a reputation as a ruthless campaigner, and now that we’ve seen this ratings upgrade, we are sure to see mega-donors dumping millions of dollars into this race to keep her in office. We simply cannot let that happen.
We know we ask a lot... Even though the winds are blowing in our favor, this is still going to be one of the toughest races in the country.
