Two-term Rep. Barbara Comstock (R-McLean) continues to draw a seemingly ever-expanding crowd of Democrats who want to oppose her. Former State Department official and ex-congressional aide Alison Kiehl Friedman announced her candidacy this week, as did educational psychologist Deep Sran. This brings the field of candidates to eight, including state Sen. Jennifer Wexton and former Veteran Affairs Department senior official Lindsey Davis Stover. The large primary gaggle could well help Rep. Comstock, as all of the candidates will be moving far to the ideological left in order to attract necessary support from base Democratic primary voters.
