Now that the 2023 elections for Virginia General Assembly are over, expect a *slew* of announcements in coming days for VA10 (which Rep. Jennifer Wexton is vacating due to tragic health circumstances) and, likely, VA07 (where Rep. Abigail Spanberger will likely announce, in the next few days, that she is running for governor of Virginia and will not seek reelection to Congress – and where a slew of Dems will probably announce to succeed her in Congress).
The first candidate to announce for VA10 was former VA House of Delegates Speaker Eileen Filler-Corn, who announced her candidacy on October 18. And now, this morning – as expected – State Sen. Jennifer Boysko (D) has also announced for VA10. See below for that. Others widely expected to announce in coming days/weeks include: Loudoun County Chair Phyllis Randall; former VA Secretary of Education Atif Qarni; State Senator Suhas Subramanyam; Del. David Reid; Del. Michelle Maldonado; former Del. Ibraheem Samirah; possibly Del. Dan Helmer; and presumably others as well (e.g., I got a press release yesterday from someone named Mark Leighton, who I’d never heard of, announcing his run for this seat). Stay tuned!
