On Dec. 28th, the Virginia Supreme Court unanimously approved maps for new congressional and state legislative districts that will remain in place for the next decade.
With redistricting maps now finalized (although the NAACP is weighing whether or not to challenge them in the U.S .Supreme Court) Clarke County will no longer be represented by Jennifer Wexton in Congress. Instead we are in the new CD6 which encompasses the length of the Shenandoah Valley from Frederick County down to Blacksburg and Roanoke.
Localities south of Frederick County along I-81 have been represented by Republican Ben Cline of the 6th District. Cline plans to run again for his seat and faces opposition from Democratic candidate Jennifer Lewis, of Waynesboro, who ran against Cline in 2018.
Voters in the new CD6 went for Trump +22% in 2020. Wexton's new CD10 is +18% Biden.
