PORTSMOUTH, VA – 05/22/2019 – Today, the Portsmouth Democratic Committee announced that Attorney Don Scott has been named the Democratic nominee for the 80th District in the House of Delegates, after no other candidate filed to participate in an upcoming caucus.

“Its been heartening to see such strong support from our community since we announced my candidacy,” said Scott.  “It just goes to show you the people of Portsmouth are united and ready for new representation in the General Assembly.”  

A scheduled caucus for June 1, 2019 at 9 AM has been cancelled.    

The 80th District seat became vacant when Delegate Matthew James resigned after receiving a gubernatorial appointment.
