Inside NOVA: Democrats will hold primary in crowded 10th District race

With nine Democrats vying for the party’s nomination, reports surfaced earlier this fall that the group was mulling more insular nominating contests, like a “firehouse” primary or a party convention. But many of the candidates pushed back on that notion, with former Obama administration staffer Lindsey Davis Stover even launching a petition urging the committee to pick the June primary.

 “I am thrilled with the committee’s decision to hold a state-run primary and want to thank all of the activists from across the district who have stepped up time after time advocating for a fair and open process for choosing the Democratic nominee,” Stover wrote in a statement. “Hundreds of voters have stood up for the right to vote and participate in the process, and to them I say: Your voices were heard today.”
