Meet Jennifer Wexton, the Democrat Challenging Barbara Comstock in VA-10
After Tuesday night’s primary results, AR Intel is taking a closer look at the Democrat who won the Virginia 10th Congressional District primary, Jennifer Wexton.
Wexton is an attorney and a Virginia state Senator. A graduate of the Marshall-Wythe School of Law at William and Mary, Wexton has spent the majority of her legal career at Ritenour Paice & Mougin-Boal, where she became a partner in 2006. Wexton’s practice included civil litigation, divorce, child custody, criminal defense, and real estate matters.
In November 2013, Wexton was selected by Democrats to run for a special election in Virginia’s 33rd State Senate district – which she won. While serving in the state Senate, Wexton was mentioned multiple times as a potential candidate for higher office. In 2015, Wexton was talked about as a potential Lieutenant Governor candidate and in 2016 she was considered as a possible candidate to run against Rep. Barbara Comstock (R-VA).
Wexton’s entrance into the 2018 race was viewed as a boon for Democrats in the district as many considered her to be the strongest candidate to challenge Comstock.
