Additional Information

Jennifer Wexton (Democrat) is the representative from Virginia's 10th Congressional District in the U.S. House. Wexton was elected to the office on November 6, 2018. Wexton won 56 percent of votes to defeat incumbent Rep. Barbara Comstock (R) and win her first term in the office.

The 2018 race for Virginia's 10th Congressional District was identified as a 2018 battleground that might have affected partisan control of the U.S. House in the 116th Congress. In the campaign, Wexton called access to affordable healthcare a right and supported expanding Medicaid in Virginia. She emphasized gun violence prevention and supported expanding mandatory background checks on gun purchases, banning the sale of military-style assault weapons and high-capacity magazines, and studying gun violence as a public health issue.

In 2014, Wexton won a special election for District 33 of the Virginia State Senate. She resigned her seat in 2019.

Wexton obtained her B.A. at the University of Maryland and her J.D. at the College of William and Mary and Marshall-Wythe School of Law. She is an attorney.
