It’s official: state Sen. Wexton launches campaign to challenge Rep. Comstock
“I believe that public service is about working every day to make people’s lives better. I’ve spent the past two decades serving the people of Virginia -- as a prosecutor, a substitute judge, an attorney for at-risk children, and now as a legislator," Wexton said in her campaign announcement. "The most important part of my job has been working to help and protect kids, families and our most vulnerable neighbors."
Earlier this week, McLean resident Lindsey Davis Stover, a former Obama administration official and communications professional, joined Army veteran and Rhodes Scholar Dan Helmer and Kimberly Adams, past president of the Fairfax teacher’s union, as Democrats hoping to challenge Comstock.
Tenth District Democrats won't select their nominee for another two years.
Comstock, a former state delegate, won her first congressional race in 2014 by 16 percent of the vote over Fairfax County Supervisor John Foust. In last November's race, she defeated real estate developer LuAnn Bennett by six points.
