Incumbent Anne B. Crockett-Stark (R) did not seek re-election, leaving the race in this usually Republican district an open seat. Presidential candidate Mitt Romney (R) won 66 percent of the vote in this district in 2012, and Governor Bob McDonnell (R) won 72 percent in 2009. Despite the uphill climb, Democrats put forward a strong bid for this seat with McGrady, a candidate who has a concealed weapons permit, an aversion to tax increases, and a door-knocking campaign despite the occasional unfriendly dog. The addition of Independent challenger Barbara T. Hall had the potential to complicate the race for Republican candidate Jeffrey L. Campbell, but Democratic candidates were likely to win elsewhere before they scored a victory in this district.[4][5]
