Race snapshot

See also: 2013 Elections Preview: Some seats may switch parties in the Virginia House of Delegates

Incumbent Edmunds chose to seek his third term and ran unopposed in 2009 and 2011, but this rural district only gave a slim margin of victory, about 51 percent of the vote, to presidential candidate Mitt Romney (R) in the 2012 election. Jasper Hendricks, III (D), an activist, had ran for office before and appeared to have attracted a fair amount of attention to his candidacy ahead of the November 2013 election, including an endorsement from Democracy for America. However, Democrats remained at a significant electoral disadvantage in this rural southwestern district.[4][5]
