2022 VA7 – US House Race

2022 VA7 – US House Race


The 7th district is based in Northern Virginia and encompasses suburban, exurban, and rural areas of Washington. The district contains Bowling Green, Culpeper, the city of Fredericksburg, Stanardsville, Woodbridge, and a small sliver of Albemarle County. The incumbent is Democrat Abigail Spanberger, who was re-elected with 50.8% of the vote in 2020.

The district was radically redrawn, and no longer includes her home in Henrico County. Despite this, Spanberger is running for re-election in this seat.
