Congresswoman Barbara Comstock will again win the Republican nomination in Virginia's 10th Congressional District, fending off a challenge from conservative Shak Hill.
With more than 98 percent of precincts reporting Tuesday night, more than 60 percent of voters in Tuesday's GOP primary cast ballots for Comstock compared to nearly 40 percent for Hill, according to the Virginia Department of Elections.
Comstock was first elected to the U.S. House of Representatives in 2014 after serving in the commonwealth's House of Delegates. She'll face Democratic state Sen. Jennifer Wexton in November.
Virginia's 10th Congressional District race is expected to be one of the closest contests in the country. Democrat Hillary Clinton defeated Republican Donald Trump in the district 55 percent to 38 percent, and The Cook Political Report has tagged the race a “toss up.”
