Virginia state Sen. Jen A. Kiggans, a Navy veteran and geriatric nurse practitioner, hopes to challenge Rep. Elaine Luria (D) in Virginia’s competitive, military-heavy 2nd District. The district, which includes Virginia Beach and Norfolk, has been a target for national Republicans, who tried to win it back in 2020 after Luria flipped it during the 2018 blue wave. The incumbent is also a Navy veteran who has positioned herself as a centrist but Kiggans has maintained that Luria votes with Nancy Pelosi "92% of the time.”
Commander Jake Ellzey served as a fighter pilot, completing 20 years of service as the Air Boss on the U.S.S. Ronald Reagan aircraft carrier. He is running against fellow Republican in the July 27 special election runoff for Congress in TX-6, a North Texas district, that became open with the passing of Rep. Ron Wright from coronavirus. Ellzey, a state representative from Waxahachie, was deployed nine times during his military career, including five combat tours by air and one by ground with Seal Team 5, and received two Bronze Stars and eight Air Medals. He served Texas as a commissioner on the Texas Veterans Commission and is currently a commercial airline pilot based out of DFW.
