Lawmakers will be back in Richmond this week, which will allow Democrats to go behind closed doors and fight over who is leading their party in the House of Delegates.

The 2018 national midterm elections are considered ‘the first contest of the Trump Era.’  But some say it really begins now with Virginia’s vote in a few weeks. Republicans have long controlled the House of Delegates.  But Democrats are hoping to ‘flip’ districts that went for Hilary Clinton in 2016.

This fall, Democrats plan to focus their attention on 17 House of Delegates districts where Hillary Clinton beat Donald Trump, but money for those races may not flood in. Michael Pope explains why.
