Freshman incumbent David Yancey (R) chose to run for re-election in a district that President Barack Obama (D) won with 52 percent of the vote in 2012 but Governor Bob McDonnell (R) won comfortably with 61 percent in 2009. His opponent for re-election, Farinholt, comes from a long family tradition of firefighters and public safety workers in the area, and mounted his first run for office in this effort. This district was quite competitive, and Farinholt attracted Democracy for America's endorsement and the national resources available through it.[4][5][6]


Farinholt is married to Tamorah (Tami) Park.[2]
