Third Way Statement on Northam Victory

November 07, 2017

WASHINGTON—Third Way issued the following statement from Matt Bennett, Senior Vice President for Public Affairs:

"This is a great night for the people of Virginia and for an approach to politics that matches the red and purple districts and states that Democrats must win to regain power at every level. Ralph Northam and a host of candidates down the ballot in Virginia have blazed a trail – if national Democrats follow, we will be celebrating on election night next November as well.

"First, Democrats in Virginia took a look at both approaches, and they rejected rigid ideology and litmus test politics and chose a broad, inclusive path. Then, the general election voters of Virginia ratified that choice in a resounding fashion.

"We offer our heartfelt congratulations to Ralph Northam, Phil Murphy, and all of the newly elected Democrats tonight, and we look forward to working with them to make life better for the people of their states."
