Incumbent: Dave Brat (R)

Challenger: Abigail Spanberger (D)

Current polling: Abigail Spanberger (D) 46, Dave Brat (R) 45 (Christopher Newport Univ., 10/27) 

Why this race matters: In the year of the woman, Spanberger has emerged as a star among stars. Spanberger, who is challenging Rep. Dave Brat in Virginia’s traditionally Republican 7th Congressional District, which has been held by that party for nearly 50 years. A former CIA officer, Spanberger has the profile and the cash – she brought in a whopping $3.6 million in the last quarter alone – to bring home a win on Tuesday.
