74 state legislative candidates received our @MomsDemand Gun Sense Candidate distinction before yesterday’s Virginia primary (some running against each other); 52 Gun Sense Candidates won and will advance to the general election


4 Moms Demand Action volunteers ran for the Virginia state legislature and 2 ran in school board races, with 5 of the 6 volunteers advancing to the general election. 💪💪💪

This fall, Virginians have a chance to flip control of both houses of the General Assembly to gun sense majorities in the @NRA’s own backyard.
