Local Democrats to road-trip to Fredericksburg to protect House seat

Must Read

A Republican family feud in 2019 handed a House of Delegates seat in the Fredericksburg area to the opposing party.

And now, the Arlington County Democratic Committee will be doing its part to make sure the situation stays that way.

The party plans to descend on the 28th House District on May 22 – pandemic conditions permitting – to knock doors in support of freshman Democratic Del. Josh Cole.

Cole won the district in 2019 with 51.8 percent of the vote, after Republicans split into moderate and conservative factions during their nominating process and couldn’t put that coalition back together in time for the general election.

This year, Cole is being challenged by Republican Tara Durant in a race the GOP must win if hopes to regain the majority in the House of Delegates. Currently, Democrats hold a five-seat majority in the lower house of the General Assembly.
