In addition to the Chopra-Northam match-up Tuesday, state Sen. Mark R. Herring, Loudoun Democrat, will square off against former federal prosecutor and current businessman Justin Fairfax in the contest to be the Democratic nominee for attorney general. The winner will face state Sen. Mark D. Obenshain, Harrisonburg Republican, who was nominated at a convention last month.
A handful of primary seats are also up in the House of Delegates. In addition to the statewide contests for governor, lieutenant governor, and attorney general, all 100 seats in the House are up for election in the fall. Republicans have enjoyed an effective 68-32 majority in the lower chamber since the 2011 elections.
