District Description: Powhatan County (All), Chesterfield County (Part), Richmond City (Part)
Current Senator: Glen Sturtevant since 2016 (R)
According to Ned Oliver of Virginia Mercury:
“Another increasingly Democratic district that Republicans barely held onto in 2015. (Democrats have carried the district in every statewide and national election since 2013.) Sturtevant, a lawyer, cast himself as a moderate, breaking with the majority of his party to back the ERA and red flag laws. Democrats say it was too little, too late, noting, among other things, his vote against universal background checks. He’ll face Hashmi, who directs a teaching center at Reynolds Community College.”
The Northern Virginia house districts include: Districts 2, 10, 13, 29, 31, 32, 33, 34, 35, 36, 37, 38, 39, 40, 41, 42, 43, 44, 45, 46, 47, 48, 49, 50, 51, 52, 53, 67, 86, 87.. All NoVA house districts are represented by Democrats except for House District 29 which is represented by Republican Chris Collins and District 33 represented by Republican Dave Larock .

Candidate: 2019 State Delegate
Mission Statement: N/A
My name is Nader Momtaz and I am a George Mason University alum that pursued a BA in Global Affairs as a part of the College of Humanities and Social Sciences and a Minor in Conflict Analysis and Resolution. I am currently the Operations Director for Democracy onAir.
I am a member of this hub to increase transparency and better communication between the politicians and the people. I truly believe that the people’s voice is stronger than any one individual and that everyone has a right to learn the facts and participate in our democracy while fulfilling their civic duties.
The Virginia 2019 elections saw both the State Senate and State House of Delegates change from Republican to Democratic control.
The Virginia State Senate in 2020 will have 21 Democratic senators and 19 Republican senators. Two senate districts flipped to the democrats: District 10 where Ghazala F. Hashmi won and District 13 where John Bell was the winner.
The Virginia House of Delegates in 2020 will have 55 Democratic delegates and 45 Republican delegates. Six house districts flipped to the democrats: District 28 won by Joshua Cole; District 40 won by Dan Helmer; District 76 won by Clint Jenkins; District 83 won by Nancy Guy; District 91 won by Martha Mugler; and District 94 won by Shelly Simonds.

Virginia onAir is focused on Virginia state and federal elections and governance.
The Virginia onAir Hub is a website where Virginia voters can LEARN about and DISCUSS with their elected officials and candidates for office and ENGAGE in supporting a more civil and vibrant democracy in Virginia. Virginia onAir is focused on elections and governance – “Governance” being how laws are made and how we as Virginia students and residents can influence legislation.
Democracy onAir, a nonpartisan nonprofit organization run by Gen Z students, oversees the development and curation of state Hubs like Virginia onAir and the onAir chapters based in public universities throughout a state. Virginia onAir is a pilot for other state Hubs and chapters which we plan on establishing in 2020.
