New Virginia Majority Succeeds in Securing Affordable Healthcare for 400,000 Virginians


The New Virginia Majority, supported by Airlift, created the plan that got people of color to the polls last November. They went 80% for Northam and helped flip 15 seats in the lower house. But elections aren’t just about electing candidates.

The top issue on voters' minds in Virginia was healthcare. NVM has been pushing for Medicaid expansion with 3 governors over 6 legislative sessions. At the end of May the dam burst and enough Republicans gave in so 400,000 additional Virginians now have healthcare.
