After running unopposed in 2011 but only winning his seat by a margin of less than 400 votes in 2009, Mark Keam (D) faced a Republican challenger in 2013. Luse, a project manager and analyst, hoped to unseat this two-term Democratic incumbent, but the district awarded President Barack Obama (D) with 59 percent of the vote in 2012 and Governor Bob McDonnell (R) with 49 percent in 2009. Republicans would have needed to have a very good election night to win this district from a Democratic candidate.[4][5]


Luse has a husband, Anton.
