Scott Taylor wins Republican nomination for VA-02, sets up rematch with Elaine Luria

Scott Taylor defeated Ben Loyola and Jarome Bell to win the Republican nomination for U.S. House in Virginia’s 2nd Congressional District. Taylor had received 48.2% of the vote to 28.3% for Loyola and 23.4% for Bell as of 8:00 PM Eastern with 74% precincts reporting. Taylor served a single term in the U.S. House before being unseated by Elaine Luria (D) in 2018. Luria was unopposed in the Democratic primary. Two election forecasters say the general election leans towards Luria and a third calls it a toss-up.
