Elaine Luria has held onto her Second Congressional District seat, defeating Scott Taylor.

Luria is a Jewish member of the so-called “Gang of Nine,” a group of moderate Democrats with national security backgrounds who were elected in 2018 to seats that had previously been held by Republicans.

Luria, a Navy veteran, was defending her incumbency in Virginia’s conservative 2nd District. She had been considered likely, but not assured of winning.

An active participant in Tidewater’s Jewish community, Luria is a member of Ohef Sholom Temple.
