Every two years, all 435 seats in the U.S. House of Representatives are decided by the voters in each of those districts.
Many of those contests are considered “safe” for one party or the other, while other district races are considered more competitive in a given election cycle.
This November, Virginia’s 10th Congressional District is one of those that is expected to be a close race. Republican incumbent Barbara Comstock is being challenged by Democrat and State Senator Jennifer Wexton.
Because of the widespread interest in this race, the Loudoun Chamber has announced it is opening additional seating when the two candidates debate on Sept. 21.
The debate, part of Loudoun Chamber’s PolicyMaker Series, is scheduled from 8 to 10 a.m. at The National Conference Center in Leesburg. Co-sponsors of the debate include the Dulles Chamber, the Schar School of Policy and Government at George Mason University and the Northern Virginia Technology Council.
