Virginia: State Democrats Expand Campaign
Posted at 12:01 a.m. on June 28, 2012
The Virginia Democratic coordinated campaign, dubbed VA Victory 2012, announced this week an expansion of its organizing efforts in the battleground state.
The coordinated campaign announced nine new senior hires who will oversee a team of more than 30 organizers from around the state, as well as six new offices — including in Roanoke, Hampton Roads and Northern Virginia — to go along with its three offices in Richmond, Alexandria and Virginia Beach.
State party Chairman Brian Moran announced the additions of Deputy Field Director Arthur Scott, Targeting and Data Director John Davis, and seven regional field directors, who all work under Keren Charles Dongo, the VA Victory 2012 director.
The commonwealth is home to tossup races at the presidential and Senate levels and at least one competitive House race.
