Virginia State House Election Results

This page contains macro-level election results and analysis for the Virginia House of Delegates elections in 2013. For results in individual contests, see our Virginia House of Delegates elections, 2013. The following is a breakdown of the state house before and after the election:

Virginia House of Delegates
Party As of November 4, 2013 After the 2013 Election
     Democratic Party 32 33
     Republican Party 65 67
     Independent 1 0
     Vacancy 2 0
Total 100 100

Heading into the November 5 election, the Republican Party held the majority in the Virginia House of Delegates. Republicans expanded their majority in the State House while Democrats managed to pick up one additional seat. Two seats were vacant and retiring incumbent Lacey Putney, an independent, allowed for both party to make gains in the chamber. Putney was the longest-serving state legislator in the country, serving since 1962. A total of four seats flipped partisan control in 2013. Those districts were:

  • District 2: Democratic challenger Michael Futrell defeated Republican incumbent Mark Dudenhefer. Dudenhefer was first elected in 2011.
  • District 4: Democratic incumbent Joe Johnson did not seek re-election in 2013. Democrats conceded the district without presenting a Democratic candidate. The district went to the unchallenged Republican candidate A. Benton Chafin.
  • District 19: Independent Lacey Putney's open district was won by Republican challenger Terry Austin.
  • District 93: Republican incumbent Michael Watson was defeated by Democratic challenger T. Monty Mason. Watson was first elected in 2007.
