The 2018 United States Senate election in Virginia will take place on November 6, 2018, to elect a member of the United States Senate to represent the Commonwealth of Virginia, concurrently with other elections to the U.S. Senate, elections to the United States House of Representatives, and various state and local elections. Incumbent Democratic Senator Tim Kaine is running for reelection to a second term.

Virginia Republicans’ central committee voted 45 to 35 to select the Republican nominee for Senate by a primary rather than a convention. Republicans hope to use the primary to allow more people to more extensively test the candidates’ organizational and fundraising abilities and to give the party a trove of fresh voter information. Because Kaine will likely face no primary opponent, it is expected that there will probably be more Democrats than usual voting in the Republican primary.

Matt Waters received the Libertarian Party nomination on March 10, 2018. He is petitioning to get ballot access for the November election. He must meet the requirements by 7:00 pm June 12.

There are the three Republicans running in the primary on June 12th:

Nicholas J. Freitas  is a member of the Virginia House of Delegates and a candidate for the US Senate in 2018. He was first elected in 2015, and represents the 30th district comprising Madison County, Orange County, and the Southern half of Culpeper County on behalf of the Republican Party. Freitas is a United States Army veteran who served two tours in Iraq.

Corey Alan Stewart is currently serving his fourth term as At-Large Chairman of the Board of Supervisors of Prince William County, Virginia. His  cracked down on illegal immigration, protection of the 2nd Amendment, and fostered pro-growth economic policies that have led Prince William County to be the top-ranked county for job growth in the Commonwealth.

Earl Walker Jackson Sr. is a Christian minister, and lawyer in Virginia. He was the Republican Party nominee for Lieutenant Governor of Virginia in the 2013 election. Jackson was a Republican primary candidate for the United States Senate in Virginia in the 2012 election, and is seeking the nomination again in 2018.

Jackson is the founder and current president of S.T.A.N.D. (Staying True To America’s National Destiny), a conservative non-profit organization that describes itself as “a national organization dedicated to preserving life, the traditional family and our Judeo-Christian history and values as the Foundation of our Constitution and culture.” He is head pastor at Exodus Faith Ministries, located in Chesapeake, Virginia. Jackson has appeared as a commentator on national news networks such as C-SPAN, Fox News and MSNBC.
