Spanberger gubernatorial run moves VA-07 toward Republicans

September 18, 2023

In case you missed it, following Abigail Spanberger’s entrance into the race for Virginia governor, VA-07 has moved toward Republicans.

As Inside Elections noted, “this seat will become harder for Democrats to hold” and “an open seat will be costlier to defend.”

“With Abigail Spanberger scrambling for the exits out of the House minority, she created another open-seat headache for national Democrats to defend. Meanwhile Republicans are pouncing at the chance to take back this seat.” – NRCC Spokeswoman Delanie Bomar
