VA Senate 12 – 2019

District Description: Henrico County (Part), Hanover County (Part)
Current Senator: Siobhan Dunnavant since 2016 (R)

According to Ned Oliver of Virginia Mercury:

“Democrats say Henrico is solidly blue now. Ergo, they say, it makes sense the district would elect a Democrat. To make their point, they note Dunnavant, who has held the district since 2015, doesn’t note her party affiliation or the fact that she’s conservative in television spots she’s been running. But their margins in the districts are still narrow. Northam won by just 5 points. Republicans counter that Dunnavant’s status as a doctor puts her on solid footing during a year health care is expected to be a major subject of debate. She faces Rodman, an anthropology professor who won election to the House in 2017.”
