VA Senate 6 – 2019

District Description: Accomack County (All), Mathews County (All), Northampton County (All), Norfolk City (Part), Virginia Beach City (Part)

According to Ned Oliver of Virginia Mercury:

“It sounds like a bit of a long shot, but it’s the one place Republicans have said they think they might have an opportunity to pick up a district.”

VA Senate 7 – 2019

District Description: Virginia Beach City (Part), Norfolk City (Part)
Current Senator: Frank W. Wagner since 2001 (R)

According to Ned Oliver of Virginia Mercury:

“Another pick-up opportunity Democrats say is made better by a recent retirement, in this case longtime GOP Sen. Frank Wagner. Democrats nominated Turpin, a high school teacher who won election to the House as part of the 2017 blue wave. She’ll face Kiggans, a former Navy pilot and nurse practitioner. Northam won this seat with 54 percent of the vote, but in the words of one Republican operative, it’s “swingy” – Trump narrowly edged out Clinton here in 2016 and Obama won in 2012.”
