Virginia Elections, Government, and Politics

In 2024, alongside the presidential election, Virginia will focus on U.S. congressional elections. In the U.S. Senate, incumbent Tim Kaine (D) will be the likely Democratic nominee. Meanwhile, numerous Republicans are facing off in the party’s primary nomination. In the U.S. House, all eleven of Virginia’s representatives are up for re-election.
