Navigating A Path to Victory in VA-82

Two weeks ago, voters across Virginia turned out to cast their ballots for state and local candidates. In Virginia’s 82nd State House District, the election was decided by only 78 votes--less than three-tenths of a percent.

Deep Root Analytics partnered with JLK Political, Content Creative, and Medium Buying to build and execute a winning strategy that successfully protected a one-term Republican incumbent running in a district that Biden carried by 11-points.

Our team has drafted a case study identifying the challenges, opportunities, and takeaways from this election and we’d like to share that with you.
