HUNG CAO
  • Vietnamese refugee and retired U.S. Navy captain Hung Cao won the GOP primary on Saturday and will go on to battle Democratic Rep. Jennifer Wexton for Northern Virginia’s 10th District.
  • In an impressive roster of 11 candidates, political newcomer Cao came out on top, reportedly gaining over 50 percent of the votes in the ninth round of balloting.
  • Cao led the polls throughout the race for the primaries, including over Prince William County Supervisor Jeanine Lawson, who was able to raise more funds than the retired veteran but ultimately lost.
  • With a district population that is 15.5 percent Asian, Cao strategically targeted the region’s immigrant communities.
  • It is predicted to be a tight race between the former Navy captain of over 25 years and Rep. Wexton, who has held the position since 2019.
