GGWash’s 2019 primary coverage

In 2019, voters will elect candidates for the Virginia House and Senate, the Fairfax Board of Supervisors, Commonwealth’s Attorneys, and more. There are also general elections in Rockville and Gaithersburg.

We want to know which candidates will best advance urbanist priorities on transportation, housing, and other policies. To do this, we’ve set up a committee of volunteers and staff to sort through these races for you.

For competitive primary races, we’re watching, we sent candidates a questionnaire and considered their responses, reader comments, and other information. Here are the races and our endorsements. All endorsements are for the Democratic primaries unless otherwise noted.
