Race snapshot

Incumbent Tyler faced a rematch against Alvin Peschke (R), but Peschke only won 34 percent of the vote in their 2011 match-up. Although President Barack Obama (D) won 62 percent of the vote in this district in 2012, Governor Bob McDonnell (R) nearly won a bare majority of the vote in 2009 in this rural district, and depending on voter turnout, Peschke had the potential to make this race more competitive than the 2011 cycle. Although some observers pointed to this race as one where Republicans might win an additional seat, a Republican victory remained unlikely.[2][3]
