Virginia Young Democrats make over 14,000 voter contacts in critical victory
In-kind organizers, volunteer force critical to victory
Centerville, VA – Delegate Dave Marsden has just won the special election to fill the senate seat vacated by Attorney General-elect Ken Cuccinelli. The district was represented by a Republican in the state senate for 8 years and carried by Republican Governor-elect Bob McDonnell. The seat is now in Democratic hands. The Virginia Young Democrats (VAYD) contributed two in-kind organizers to the campaign after Delegate Marsden was the only Democrat to file. In the past five-and-a-half weeks, VAYD organizers Trent Armitage and Mary Kate Aylward and scores of VAYD volunteers combined to make well over 14,000 voter contacts in this race. The margin of victory for Senator-elect Marsden was less than 350 votes.
