Former Rep. Scott Taylor (R-VA) lost his first reelection campaign to Navy veteran Elaine Luria (D-VA) last year. The 2nd District, located in Virginia Beach, has historically voted Republican but Luria was able to secure a 2-point victory in 2018.
Located in the suburbs of Richmond, Virginia’s 7th District has traditionally voted Republican. In 2014, conservative Dave Brat defeated then-House Majority Leader Eric Cantor in a shocking primary upset. Brat cruised to reelection in 2016 before falling to former CIA operative Abigail Spanberger (D-VA) by 2 points in 2018.
