Election Day is 3 weeks from today, and a brand new poll just came out today showing Ed Gillespie LEADING the governor’s race 48-47!
There have been many polls showing the race tied or within the margin of error, but this is the first poll showing Gillespie with a lead. It’s clear that momentum is building on our side!
This poll is still within the margin, so we can’t let up. Please check out our Upcoming Events, contact your county/city GOP committee for ways to volunteer, and consider donating to the campaigns and your local committee to assist with the final push to Election Day!

The biased Washington Post is at it again. Today they released a poll giving the Democrat Ralph Northam a 13% advantage. It is a blatant attempt to discourage Republicans in Northern Virginia from going to the polls.
This is not a new tactic for the liberal paper. Just days before the 2013 election, they released a poll showing Terry McAuliffe with a 12% lead. The final margin was only 2.5%.
Don’t let the Post’s attempt at voter suppression attempt work. Spread the word that Ed, Jill and John can still win.
But they still need our time and our financial resources to get across the finish line. Please help however you can!
In person absentee voting has started in Virginia for the November 7th election. Ed Gillespie, Jill Vogel, John Adams and all of our Republican candidates need your vote. So if you think you will be unable to make it to the polls on Election Day, please make a plan to vote before then.
Absentee voting is NOW OPEN for the 2017 general elections!
You can vote by mail or in person. Details, hours, and locations are listed on our 2017 Elections page!
Four new polls on the governor’s race have come out in the last two days, and they show that Republican nominee Ed Gillespie is locked in a dead heat with Ralph Northam!
Suffolk University poll, 9/18:
Gillespie 42, Northam 42
Vogel 35, Fairfax 36
Adams 37, Herring 39
(Margin of error ±4.4%)
University of Mary Washington poll, 9/18:
Gillespie 39, Northam 44
(Margin of error ±5.2%)
Fox News poll, 9/19
Gillespie 38, Northam 42
(Margin of error ±4.0%)
Mason Dixon poll, 9/19
Gillespie 43, Northam 44
(Margin of error ±4.0%)
Even in the polls where Northam has a slight lead, the lead is within the margin of error. That means Ed Gillespie has closed the gap and the race is a statistical tie, and so are the races for Lt. Governor and Attorney General!
We saw in 2013 and 2014 that the polls predicted Republican candidates in Virginia would be wiped out by 9 or 10 points, but the races were decided by less than 2 points. If the polls are showing a tie, that’s good news.
Now is the time to get involved: volunteer or donate!
