This Virginia Beach-area open seat rests on a Republican-heavy district held by the retiring Bob Purkey (R), but Democratic candidate Bill Fleming, a physicist and a small business investor, was selected by Democracy for America as a good investment. Both candidates started the campaign as new to state legislative races, but Republican candidate DeSteph was elected to the Virginia Beach City Council in 2006. This seat, though on the radar of possible switches and in a part of the state that is becoming increasingly favorable to Democrats, was likely to stay in Republican hands during the 2013 election cycle.[2][3][4]


DeSteph has two children and currently resides in Virginia Beach, Virginia.
