Barbara Comstock, Jennifer Wexton win 10th District primary

RICHMOND, Va. – Republican Barbara Comstock and Democrat Jennifer Wexton will face each other in November for the congressional election.

Both women won their primaries Tuesday in the 10th District, which has been a key target for Democrats trying to take control of the House.

In the same District where Hillary Clinton beat Donald Trump by 10 points, democrats are hopeful to flip the seat.

Comstock, the incumbent, beat her challenger, Shak Hill, gaining 60.7% of the vote.

There were six candidates in the Democratic primary, but ultimately Wexton came out on top with 41.9% of the vote. Her closest match was Alison Friedman who gained almost 23% of the vote.

The 10th District includes much of northern Virginia and stretches from Winchester to Manassas.
