Candidates and Campaigns

Among the seven candidates seeking to become the Republicans’ nominee for Lieutenant Governor two have no public office experience. But, from their point-of-view, that’s a good thing. 

Nine candidates are seeking their party’s nominations for Lieutenant Governor this year.  The first in our profile formerly served as state Delegate and state Senator and is one of only two women to run for statewide office during this nominating season, Jeannemarie Davis.

The second in this first part of our series is former Army Colonel and long-time Delegate, Scott Lingamfelter. 

More than six years into his career as a State Senator, Mark Herring believes it's now time to transition into a higher office—as Virginia’s next Attorney General. 

He's one of only two Democrats running for the office, which he says has been held too long by Republicans.  

In Part 4 of our election series, we talk with the Senator from Loudoun County, who’s seeking the Democratic nomination in the June 11th primary.

On June 11th, ALL registered voters in the Commonwealth will be able to participate in a Democratic primary to choose the party’s candidates for Lieutenant Governor and Attorney General.

In Part 3 of our election series, Virginia Public Radio’s Tommie McNeil reports on a small business-owner and former federal prosecutor who is seeking the Democratic nomination for Attorney General:  Justin Fairfax.

On May 18th, Virginia Republicans will choose their party’s nominee for Attorney General at a statewide convention, and two veteran state lawmakers are vying for the job. 

In the first installment of our election series, Virginia Public Radio’s Anne Marie Morgan introduces us to one of those contenders: the lawmaker elected to Thomas Jefferson’s seat in the General Assembly, Delegate Rob Bell.
