A Democrat has now stepped up to challenge for the District 65 seat in the Virginia House of Delegates race as yet this fall. Republican Lee Ware currently holds this post. The Republican was able to secure 19,842 votes in this uncontested district the last cycle. Lee has been in the post since a 1998 special election, and this seat has been in Republican hands since at least 1982.
This Republican district is pretty stable. 20,000 votes is a brisk turnout in an uncontested race.
The Democratic challenger this fall will be Francis Stevens. This means all of the districts in Chesterfield county now have Democratic candidates.
