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.”
