Virginia Legislative Primaries are Tuesday

Richmond, VA - The Virginia legislative primaries are Tuesday.

Democrats will vote for their nominees for Lieutenant Governor and Attorney General, and several House seats are on ballots in both the Democratic and Republican primaries.

Seven House incumbents, including five Republicans, face challenges from newcomers.

Among Republicans facing primaries are House Speaker Bill Howell and three committee chairmen.

The most heated Democratic challenge is to Delegate Rosalyn Dance, whose opponent has endorsements from Democratic House and Senate members.

In the 16th District, two Republicans are running for the nomination: Les Adams and Ken Bowman.
