June 8th Democratic Caucus Canceled for the 15th Senate District.
Virginia Smith, Prince George resident, educator, writer, and entrepreneur was the only person to prefile for nomination as the Democratic Nominee for the 15th Virginia Senate District. Over 80% of Prince George is in the 15th. She is the nominee so you do not need to vote anywhere in Prince George if you are in support of her candidacy as a Democrat.
There is a Republican Primary for the 15th which pits Dale L. Sturdifen against the incumbent Frank M. Ruff, Jr. But that does not involve Virginia Smith.
