While there is a candidate running against every single Republican delegate in Prince William County and Loudoun County – there is one in Fairfax County who has not seemed to have found an opponent – Jim Lemunyon in the 67th District – which includes Chantilly, Oakton, Sully and part of South Riding.  Click here for map.

In 2012, President Obama won Jim LeMunyon's Delegate seat by 9%.  Tim Kaine won by 10%.  Tim Kaine also won his district in 2005, Jim Webb won it in 2006, President Obama won it in 2008.  The 67th District is a Democratic district.  

 
We can find a candidate to run in districts that are much more Republican.  Why can't anyone find a candidate?  Here's his “moderate” record.
