Virginia Democrats vying for the U.S. House outraise Republicans for the quarter (Washington Post)

Stephen J. Farnsworth, a political science professor at the University of Mary Washington, said Democrats’ strong showing in 2017 — winning the governor’s race by nine points and flipping 15 state delegate seats — convinced donors Virginia is a good political investment.

“The unpopularity of Trump that you saw last year is present this year as well,” Farnsworth said, “and these financial numbers suggest that a lot of donors think 2018 is going to look like 2017 in Virginia.”
