Chris Hurst (VA-12)

WHY IS THIS RACE IMPORTANT?

All 100 seats in the Virginia House of Delegates are up for election in 2017. Republicans hold 66 of the 100 seats. Every seat counts towards flipping the Virginia legislature blue. GOP leaders say many districts—including those won by Clinton—remain Republican strongholds for state elections. In 2015, only 21 Democrats ran against GOP lawmakers. This year, Democrats plan to challenge 45 GOP incumbents—including 17 lawmakers whose districts voted for Democrat Hillary Clinton in 2016.

HISTORY OF THE SEAT

Virginia’s 12th state House District, which is represented by Republican Joseph Yost, voted for Hillary Clinton by a 48-44 margin, making it one of 17 seats in the chamber (out of 100 total) that’s held by the GOP but was carried by Clinton.
