Former governor Terry McAuliffe, who served from 2014 to 2018, is hoping to mount a rare comeback and become the second Virginia governor since the Civil War to win two terms. He faces a broad array of competitors in the primary, including former delegate Jennifer Carroll Foy (Prince William); state Sen. Jennifer L. McClellan; Lt. Gov. Justin Fairfax, only the second African American elected statewide in Virginia; and Del. Lee J. Carter (Manassas), a self-proclaimed socialist.
