Virginia House of DelegatesVirginia State Senate
Elections for the office of Virginia's House of Delegates consisted of a primary election on June 11, 2013, and a general election on November 5, 2013.

The signature filing deadline for candidates wishing to run in this election was March 28, 2013. Independent candidates wishing to run in the general election were required to submit their nomination petitions by June 11, 2013.[1]

Nomination petitions must contain the signatures of at least 125 qualified voters in the legislative district. Major party candidates are required to submit a primary filing fee equal to 2% of the annual salary for the office sought in effect in the year in which the candidate files. In 2013, the primary filing fee was $352.80.[1]

Republicans expanded their majority in the State House while Democrats managed to pick up one additional seat. Two seats were vacant and retiring incumbent Lacey Putney, an independent, allowed for both parties to make gains in the chamber. Putney was the longest-serving state legislator in the country, serving since 1962. A total of four seats flipped partisan control in 2013. Those districts were:

Qualifications

In order to run for the House of Delegates, a candidate must:

  • Be 21 years of age or older.
  • A qualified elector in the Commonwealth in Virginia.
  • Be a resident of the district they plan to run for[3].
  • If a Republican or Democrat candidate, pay a filing fee equivalent to 2 percent of the current salary elected State Representatives make[4].
  • If running as an independent, collecting signatures via petition[4].

Impact of Redistricting

This map shows the Virginia House districts after 2011 redistricting.

In the General Assembly, new State Senate and State House districts were dramatically redrawn in Northern Virginia. Although the number of state senate districts remained at 40, large population growth in the Northeastern counties meant that the state needed to add several new house districts. It had not been determined where the new districts would be added, but this affected how the other Senate and House districts would be drawn.[5] When the new lines were drawn, the ideal size for a Senate district was 200,000 while House districts were 88,900.[6]

On April 29, 2011, Governor of Virginia Bob McDonnell (R) signed a revised legislative redistricting plan.[7] Following the Governor's initial veto, the House quickly passed a revised version of their chamber's maps, reuniting a handful of divided precincts.[8] In the State Senate, Democrats initially expressed strong opposition to changes, defending the fairness of the plan.[9] However, Democrats and Republicans ultimately reached a compromise and passed a modified plan 32-5. While several modifications to plans were made, it appeared that the key compromise centered on Virginia Beach. The original plan had consolidated two Republican seats in the region into one district. The new plan preserved two distinct districts.[10]

Governor McDonnell responded favorably to the revised plans. In a statement released prior to his signature, McDonnell stated that the plan "retains more geographic and municipal boundaries, contains districts that are somewhat more compact, and passed the Senate on a strong bipartisan vote." McDonnell also said that the plan is a "great improvement" over the previous draft.[11] The plan moved to the Department of Justice for approval under the Voting Rights Act.

Polling and analysis

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

According to a September 2013 poll of Virginia voters, 47 percent approved of the job the General Assembly was doing, while 32 percent disapproved. About 80 percent of those polled favored term limits for the General Assembly.[12]

A July 2013 poll of the state's voters suggested that Democratic state legislative candidates lead in the "generic ballot" by 46 percent to 42 percent, and a January 2013 poll by the same firm yielded similar results.[13][14] However, political analyst Geoffrey Skelley of the University of Virginia's Center for Politics wrote in August 2013 that Republicans were "certain to retain control of Virginia House of Delegates."[15]

Skelley also noted that state Democrats have effectively yielded a seat to the Republican caucus already, as District 4 Delegate Joe Johnson (D) is retiring from a district that has trended very Republican since he first took office in 1990, and only A. Benton Chafin (R) is running to replace him. This projected defeat for Democrats suggests that they would need to have a net gain of 20 seats to take over the chamber, and Skelley says that they may win five or six seats from Republicans.[15]

Ballotpedia's own Competitiveness Index suggested that the 2013 Virginia House of Delegates races may be somewhat more competitive than the last cycle, with more delegates challenged overall and more balance between Republican and Democratic incumbents going unchallenged than in the 2011 House of Delegates elections.

Skelley suggested that the level of success Democratic candidates for the House of Delegates have depends substantially on the electoral performance of Democratic gubernatorial candidate Terry McAuliffe. A close gubernatorial race, according to Skelley, will likely keep the number of seats that switch control between parties relatively small.[15]

Most competitive races

Skelley identified three races that he considered the most competitive in the state.[15]

Potentially competitive races

Skelley also highlighted 16 other races that he considered potentially competitive.[15]

Fifty-six candidates (56%) faced no competition in the November 5 general election and were thus, barring unforeseen circumstances, guaranteed re-election in November.

  • 22 Democratic candidates faced no November challenger.
  • 34 Republican candidates faced no November challenger

Primary challenges

Seven incumbents faced competition in the June 11 primary. Two of those incumbents were defeated by their primary challenger.

Retiring incumbents

Nine incumbent representatives did not run for re-election, while 91 (91%) ran for re-election. Of the nine incumbents who did not run for re-election, two were Democrats, six were Republicans and one was an independent.

Note: John Cosgrove won a special election to a Virginia State Senate seat and withdrew from the race for House District 78. His departure triggered a new filing period for candidates and allowed Leftwich to enter the race.[16][17][18]
