Democratic candidate Martha Mugler is a native of Hampton and lives in Poquoson with her husband and two children. Mugler was elected to the Hampton School Board in 2008, and is currently serving her third term.

She vows to protect the Chesapeake Bay and address the effects of climate change and sea level rise. She supports a person’s right to choose a safe and legal abortion without politically-motivated restrictions. She also supports efforts to reform Virginia’s cash bail system that imprisons people who have not been convicted of a crime unless they can pay for release.

Her opponent, Republican Colleen Holcomb, is the vice-president of Government Relations of Eagle Forum, a right-wing, anti-choice, anti-immigrant organization. Holcomb opposes Medicaid expansion.

Martha Mugler is the more progressive choice in this race.
