The ODU onAir Chapter curates posts in the Southeastern VA region.

VA House 21 – 2019

District Description:  Cities of Chesapeake (part) and Virginia Beach (part)
Current Delegate: Kelly Convirs-Fowler since 2018 (D)

According to Ned Oliver of Virginia Mercury:

“Democrats had been angling for this seat for years. Fowler, a first-time candidate, picked it up in 2017, knocking off longtime delegate Ron Villanueva with 52 percent of the vote. This year Fowler, a real estate agent, faces Kane, a former city council member.”

VA House 76 – 2019 Election

District Description: Cities of Chesapeake (part) and Suffolk (part)
Current Delegate: Chris Jones since 1998 (R)

According to Ned Oliver of Virginia Mercury:

“Once basically invincible, Jones, the Republican chair of the House money committee, was hardest hit by a court ordered-redistricting plan, which turned his reliable red district distinctly blue. Democrats there now hold a theoretical 15-point advantage, a figure calculated as part of the redistricting process based on 2012 presidential election results. Democrats are already spending money there on digital ads to boost Jenkins, a real estate agent. Neither Jones nor his party, however, are writing off the district. Republicans say their candidate is well known and well liked in the area, the result of years of hard campaigning.”

VA House 83 – 2019 Election

District Description: Cities of Norfolk (part) and Virginia Beach (part)

Current Delegate: Chris Stolle since 2010 (R)

According to Ned Oliver of Virginia Mercury:

“Stolle, who has held the seat for nine years, saw his district skew 12 points more Democratic as part of the court-ordered remedial redistricting plan, and Democrats had already been doing pretty well in the district, where Northam won in 2017 with 54 percent of the vote and Kaine won with 57 percent. Guy, a former school board member, has also been outraising Stolle, who Democrats note is one of a handful of Republicans being boosted by national Republican groups – something they view as a sign the party is worried.”

VA House 84 – 2019

District Description: City of Virginia Beach (part)a
Current Delegate: Glenn Davis since 2014 (R)

According to Ned Oliver of Virginia Mercury:

“Davis has represented the district since 2014 and, while it has tilted Democratic in recent statewide contests (Northam won with 54 percent of the vote), Trump still won here with 49 percent of the vote. But Democrats say Mallard, a teacher and the daughter of a coal miner, is a strong candidate. And they say if Republican inaction on gun violence is likely to resonate anywhere, it will be Virginia Beach, where a shooter killed 12 in May.”

VA House 85 – 2019

District Description:City of Virginia Beach (part)
Current Delegate: Cheryl Turpin since 2018 (D)

According to Ned Oliver of Virginia Mercury:

“Democrats flipped this district in 2017 by just 389 votes. Holcomb, the Republican sheriff’s deputy who lost in 2017, is back for a rematch, but Cheryl Turpin, who beat him, is not, opting instead to run for Senate. Democrats nominated Askew, a longtime political and campaign aide, to replace her. Republicans say the fact that their candidate is coming to the table with name recognition from a past campaign and a short stint as a delegate boosts their chances.”

VA House 91 – 2019 Election

District Description: County of York (part); Cities of Hampton (part) and Poquoson
Current Delegate: Gordon Helsel since 2011 (R)

According to Ned Oliver of Virginia Mercury:

“This is another district that got a significantly bluer under a court-ordered redistricting plan. The Republican incumbent who held the seat, Gordon Helsel, decided not to run for reelection, which Democrats say boosts their chances because the GOP will be starting from scratch in terms of name ID.

Kaine won here with 57 percent of the vote and, so far Mugler, a longtime school board member who ran as a moderate in the Democratic primary, has far outraised Holcomb, a lawyer and lobbyist who represented the conservative Family Foundation.”

VA House 94 – 2019 Election

District Description:  City of Newport News (part)
Current Delegate: David Yancey since 2012 (R)

According to Ned Oliver of Virginia Mercury:

“You may recall that two years ago this election resulted in a dead tie that was resolved via a random drawing from a bowl. Since then, a court-ordered redistricting plan gave Democrats a much bigger partisan advantage in the district. This year’s rematch once again pits incumbent Republican Yancey against Democrat Shelly Simonds. Democrats see it as their most obvious opportunity to pick up a seat. Money is already pouring in: Simonds has raised $290,000 so far and Yancey has raised $335,000.”

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.”
