Democratic Rep. Spanberger survives Vega challenge in Virginia

Nov 08, 2022


Democratic Rep. Abigail Spanberger won a nail-biter reelection in Virginia’s 7th Congressional District. The race between the moderate Spanberger and her Republican challenger, Yesli Vega, was considered a toss up in the RealClearPolitics average of polls.

In an election where abortion rights become a top issue, Vega, who hoped to become the first Latina in the commonwealth’s congressional delegation, ran on her support for a nationwide abortion ban. Plus, the GOP had targeted the district during her redistricting.

Spanberger’s race in the outer suburbs of Washington, D.C., was seen as a potential bellwether for the 2022 midterms.
