State Sen. Jennifer Wexton wins the Democratic race to run against Rep. Comstock

State Sen. Jennifer Wexton beat five Democrats in the race to challenge Rep. Barbara Comstock (R) in what will be one of the most closely watched midterm elections in the nation.

By mid-evening, Wexton had nearly twice as many votes as her nearest rival, anti-human-trafficking activist Alison Friedman, in Virginia’s 10th Congressional District, unofficial results show.

Wexton, the establishment favorite, ran on her legislative record and the strength of endorsements from Gov. Ralph Northam (D) and Rep. Gerald E. Connolly (D-Va.) as well as the Coalition to Stop Gun Violence. A former federal prosecutor, she is the only candidate from Loudoun County, the heart of the district. ...

The diverse, suburban 10th District is one of 23 GOP-held districts that Democrats feel they must win to take control of the House. Virginia Democrats hope for a repeat of the enthusiasm that carried Northam to a decisive win in 2017 and nearly flipped the state House of Delegates.

Anti-Trump voters in the district, which stretches from Loudoun and parts of Fairfax and Prince William counties to Clarke and Frederick counties in the west, unseated nearly every GOP state lawmaker representing the same territory as Comstock.

The first poll since state Sen. Jennifer Wexton (D-Loudoun) won the primary to challenge Rep. Barbara Comstock (R) shows President Trump appears to be a drag on the Republican’s chances for reelection in her northern Virginia district this November.

In a head-to-head match up, Wexton leads Comstock by 10 points — 49 to 39, with 12 percent undecided or supporting someone else — even though most voters said they had no opinion of the Democrat, according to a Monmouth University poll released Tuesday.

Democrat Wexton leads Rep. Comstock by 12 points in northern Va. district, survey finds

President Trump’s unpopularity fuels a clear lead for Democrat Jennifer Wexton over Rep. Barbara Comstock (R), putting a prized northern Virginia district within reach for Democrats for the first time in almost four decades, a new Washington Post-Schar School poll finds.

A month before the midterm election, Wexton, a state senator and former prosecutor, is ahead by 12 points, 55 percent to 43 percent among likely voters.

The survey finds voters say the president is the most important factor influencing likely voters’ choice for Congress, more so even than the strong economy which would boost the party in power in a typical election year.

Instead, Trump’s approval rating is weaker in the 10th District, 35 percent, than in a parallel survey of competitive House districts across the nation, which found 43 percent approve of the president.

In Virginia’s 10th District, 87 percent of voters who disapprove of Trump support Wexton, while 98 percent of Trump approvers support Comstock.

Comey donates maximum amount to Democratic challenger in Virginia House race

Former FBI Director James Comey donated the maximum legal amount to Democratic candidate Jennifer Wexton as she campaigns to unseat vulnerable Virginia Rep. Barbara Comstock (R) in November.

Comey donated $2,700 to Wexton's campaign in September as the Virginia Democrat continues to gain momentum in the state's hotly-contested 10th congressional district race, Federal Election Commission filings show.

The former FBI head has traditionally donated to Republican campaigns, including Mitt Romney’s 2012 presidential campaign and John McCain’s presidential campaign in 2008.

However, Comey, who was fired by President Trump in May 2017, revealed earlier this year that he was leaving the Republican party because of the president.
