For the 73rd District seat, Democrat Rodney Willett and Republican Mary Margaret Kastelberg are running for public office for the first time. According to VPAP, Willett has an almost $3,000 lead with donations, with both candidates raising over $280,000. Incumbent Del. Debra Rodman, D-Henrico, flipped the district blue in 2017 in a tight victory over John O’Bannon. Rodman hopes to win the seat in Senate District 12 from incumbent Sen. Siobhan Dunnavant, R-Henrico.
