VA House 40 – 2019 Election

District Description: County of Fairfax (part)
Current Delegate: Tim Hugo since 2003 (D)

According to Ned Oliver of Virginia Mercury:

” Now the lone Republican representing Northern Virginia in the House, Hugo held onto his seat by just 100 votes in 2017. His challenger, Democrat Dan Helmer, has already raised more than $400,000 for his campaign. Hugo, whose represented the seat since 2003 is sitting on $796,000, and his party is bullish, arguing that if the seat was going to go Democratic, it would have happened in 2017.”

VA House District 13 – 2019

District Description: County of Prince William (part); City of Manassas Park
Current Delegate: Danica  Roem since 2018 (D)

According to Ned Oliver of Virginia Mercury:

“A tougher lift for Republicans, but they say it’s in the realm of possibility. Roem, a former newspaper reporter and the first transgender woman elected to the statehouse, has a nationwide profile and is well liked. She faces Kelly McGinn, a former lawyer and congressional staffer, who opposed the ERA and has a history of opposing same-sex marriage, positions that echo the stances of Bob Marshall – the anti-LGBTQ delegate Roem toppled in 2017.”

VA House 10 – 2019

District Description: Counties of Clarke (part), Frederick (part), and Loudoun (part)
Current Delegate: Wendy Gooditis since 2018 (D)

According to Ned Oliver of Virginia Mercury:

“Another 2017 rematch. Gooditis, a real estate agent, beat Minchew, a lawyer who held the seat since 2012, with just under 51 percent of the vote. Republicans say their candidate is well liked and poised to make a comeback. Democrats say the race will come down to turnout.”

VA House District 31 – 2019

District Description: Counties of Fauquier (part) and Prince William (part)
Current Delegate: Liz Guzman since 2018 (D)

According to Ned Oliver of Virginia Mercury:

” Another district where a Democratic newcomer toppled a long serving Republican last time around, in this case Scott Lingamfelter. Democrats sound confident Guzman, a social worker who won with 54 percent of the vote, has it locked down. Republicans, meanwhile, are jazzed about Jordan, a congressional staffer and one of two African-American candidates the party has recruited this year.”

VA House District 50 – 2019

District Description: County of Prince William (part); City of Manassas
Current Delegate: Lee Carter since 2017 (D)

According to Ned Oliver of Virginia Mercury:

” Carter, the state’s only elected Democratic Socialist, flipped the reliably red district in 2017, winning with a 10 point margin. Republicans say they don’t think he’ll do as well now that his views – which can be polarizing even among Democrats – are better known. Democrats aren’t so concerned, saying they think Carter’s bigger challenge was winning the primary earlier this year.”

VA House District 51 – 2019

District Description:  County of Prince William (part)
Current Delegate Hala Ayala since 2018 (D)

According to Ned Oliver of Virginia Mercury:

“Huge turnout in 2017 handed this district to Democrats by a healthy 14 point margin, with Ayala, a computer security specialist, toppling Anderson, a former Air Force officer who had represented the area in the General Assembly since 2010. Republicans say they’re going to lean on Anderson’s name recognition as a longtime officeholder, but Democrats say they think that might be to his detriment, noting mail he sent out during the last campaign criticized as racist.”
