Gov. Glenn Youngkin stars in a new ad backing Republican congressional candidate Jen Kiggans in the race for Virginia’s 2nd Congressional District.
“Last year together we did something historic,” Youngkin says in the ad, referring to his victory in the 2021 election for Virginia Governor.
“We started a movement to empower parents, make life more affordable, and keep our communities safe. Now we can keep that going by sending my friend Jen Kiggans to fight for us in Congress. A nurse practitioner and Navy helicopter pilot, Jen knows how to get things done for Hampton Roads. Jen gets it, and I’m with Jen.”
Kiggans is running against first-term Democratic U.S. Rep. Elaine Luria in the district, which covers Virginia Beach, Suffolk, Cape Charles, Exmore, Onancock and Chincoteague. The district previously covered parts of Hampton and Williamsburg, but those portions were removed during redistricting.
The new configuration has left many prognosticators to label CD 2 as one of the most competitive congressional races in the nation this cycle, with The Cook Political Report rating it as an R+2 seat and listing it as a “Democratic Toss Up.”
