Updated Oct. 13 | No Democrat has entered the race against freshman Virginia Rep. Barbara Comstock. But there’s a new recruit whose name may be familiar to Washington.
National Democrats are talking to businesswoman LuAnn Bennett, who is president of the District of Columbia-based Bennett Group, a real estate management firm. Bennett is also the third ex-wife of former Rep. James P. Moran, who represented Virginia’s 8th District until his retirement in 2015.
