Dan Helmer

Virginia House of Delegates

In 2021, we helped Virginia Delegate Dan Helmer retain his seat in an election that saw the loss of seven Democratic seats in the Virginia House of Delegates, along with their majority and down-ballot statewide offices. In this hard-fought race, Helmer not only won reelection but expanded both his total votes and margin compared to his win in 2019 while running ahead of statewide candidates.

Our relationship with Helmer began in 2019, when we were proud to help him win his race against the GOP majority caucus leader—an eight-term Republican incumbent—in the most expensive delegate race in Virginia history. Helmer’s win helped Democrats take majority control of the House of Delegates.
