For Virginia House of Delegates, District 12


Chris Hurst is the newly elected Virginia Delegate for District 12, representing the Southwest part of the state. 

Widely regarded as a rising star in the Commonwealth, Chris moved to Southwest Virginia almost a decade ago where he became one of the youngest evening news anchors in the country. After advocating as a journalist for issues such as access to mental health care and equality in education for students with special needs, his life was set on a different path in 2015 when his girlfriend was murdered on live television. He decided to run for office and work on behalf of his community through public service. Chris Hurst built a strong campaign organization of young people in the area and was able to defeat a 3-term incumbent to win one of the state’s most contentious races last fall. We’re excited to see what Chris will do in Richmond and beyond.
