Fairfax is running for election to the office of Attorney General. He is seeking the Democratic nomination for the open seat, currently occupied by Ken Cuccinelli (R). Cuccinelli is running for governor rather than another term as attorney general in the 2013 elections.[2]

The Republican Party of Virginia is holding a closed primary convention on May 17-18, 2013 to nominate its candidates for governor, lt. governor, and attorney general. The candidate in each field who receives the highest number of delegate votes at the convention will compete against with the winners of the June 11 Democratic primary election in the general election on November 5, 2013.
