Read time:

The Wason Center for Public Policy and the Virginia Peninsula Chamber of Commerce will host a debate with the candidates for the 94th House of Delegates District on Wednesday, October 23.

“On election day, Republican or Democratic control of the Virginia House of Delegates could very well come down to the voters in the 94th House of Delegates District,” said Dr. Quentin Kidd, director of the Wason Center. “Two years ago, this race ended in a tie and came down to a name being pulled out of a bowl. This is one of the most hotly watched races in Virginia this year.”

“CNBC recently named Virginia the best state for business in America. With this race shaping up to be one of the most important House of Delegates races in Virginia, our members are excited to hear how the candidates plan to keep Virginia on top,” said Bob McKenna, president of the Virginia Peninsula Chamber of Commerce.
