Mr. Benjamin is Uncontested in the Primary, therefore, automatically advanced to a spot on the General Election ballot in November.

The D-incumbent has a challenger and the winner of that primary will also have a spot on the G.E. ballot.

Aston Donald McEachin (D)

Currently serving as Proxy" for:

Rep Jennifer Wexton (D-VA10)

since May 26, 2020

(CV-19 excuse)

(source: govtrack.us)

Why can't Ms. Wexton travel to DC?

Virginia allows a "Non-Primary method" of selecting a candidate.

From the VA Dept. of Elections:

*Political Parties may choose to nominate their candidates using a method other than a primary (e.g. convention, caucus, mass meeting, etc.)". (link downloads the pdf).

 

A Republican Convention was held on 06/13/2020 and Mr. Good was selected to represent the party in the General Election and advances automatically to the November ballot.
