Democrats and Republicans are fighting for control of the Virginia State Senate. The GOP holds a 21-19 majority, with all 40 seats up for election on Nov. 5, 2019. The elections are occurring against the backdrop of the 2017 state House elections when Democrats gained 15 seats. Gov. Ralph Northam (D) won 25 of the 40 senate districts in the 2017 gubernatorial election.
The outcome of the elections will determine control of Virginia’s government when congressional and state legislative district lines are redrawn after the 2020 Census. If Republicans retain control of the Senate or the state House, they will have a seat at the redistricting table. If Democrats win both chambers of the legislature, they will have a trifecta and full control of the government during redistricting. Gov. Northam will serve through 2021 and can veto new maps.
