Some House Of Delegates Seats Are In Play

The Charlottesville and Albemarle members of the House of Delegates are running unopposed, but some fellow lawmakers don’t have that luxury. There’s a heated House of Delegates race in Fairfax County where two women are rival candidates. Democrat Kathleen Murphy is trying to oust two-term Republican Barbara Comstock of McLean.
Comstock (pictured) says the transportation package that passed last winter has flaws and she views it as detrimental to many of her constituents. The University of Virginia’s Center for Politics is predicting Republicans will keep control of the House, regardless of what happens in the statewide races.
