Virginia Rep. Barbara Comstock is in for a number of Democratic challengers in her 2018 re-election bid — a list that may include Virginia first lady Dorothy McAuliffe.

Ms. McAuliffe made her intentions known this week through her husband, Gov. Terry McAuliffe, who said in an interview with The Washington Post that his wife was “very seriously considering” a run against Ms. Comstock in Virginia’s tenth congressional district.

Ms. McAuliffe would be the fifth Democrat to join the race to unseat Ms. Comstock, a Republican currently serving her second term in Congress. The district is historically red, but Hillary Clinton won the district over Donald Trump in November, giving Democrats some hope they can take the seat. 

This is expected to be one of next year’s most competitive House races.
