VA House 100 – 2019

District Description: Counties of Accomack and Northampton; Cities of Norfolk (part) and Virginia Beach (part)
Current Officeholder: Rob Bloxom since 2014 (R)

According to Ned Oliver of Virginia Mercury:

“Statewide Democrats have won here, but just barely. Nonetheless, Democrats are particularly enthusiastic about Hernandez, an attorney with the National Employment Law Center who has far outraised Bloxom. But Republicans say money isn’t everything and note that the 53 percent of the vote Northam captured here in 2017 isn’t necessarily all that impressive when you consider it’s the governor’s home turf.”

Robert Bloxom

Current Position: State Delegate since 2014
