March 2 – Virginia’s 41st Assembly District

March 2 – Virginia’s 41st Assembly District

After David Marsden’s important special election victory in the 37th State Senate race, picking up the seat for Democrats, the party on the left has to defend the assembly seat he is leaving. This may be a tricky task. Marsden is a moderate Democrat and a good fit for this district that was traditionally fiscally conservative but, along with the rest of Northern Virginia, has been trending Democratic in recent election cycles. The district contains parts of Burke and Springfield. Both candidates come from the same neighborhood in Wst Springfield.

Holding the mantle for Democrats is Eileen Filler-Corn. A former aide to both Mark Warner, when he was governor and Tim Kaine, she is hoping that her experience in state government appeals to voters and that they turn out for her on election day. She also serves on the Fairfax County Public Schools Child Care Advisory Council. To learn more, click here.

The Republican challenger is well known to district voters. Kerry Bolognese ran in 2008 for the seat and surprised many people by coming exceptionally close to beating the Democratic incumbent, losing by 208 votes. He is currently Vice President for International Programs at the National Association of State Universities and Land-Grant Colleges. To learn more, click here.
