Virginia Senate's 13th District 
Incumbent Republican Richard Black; Democrat Jill McCabe

The firebrand Dick Black is fighting McCabe and tens of thousands of dollars from outside groups like Emily's List and Planned Parenthood, not to mention the all-out endorsement of Gov. Terry McAuliffe's operation. The governor and state Democrats are hell-bent on flipping control of the 21-Republican-19-Democrat Senate back their way. 

Black, a staunch fiscal and social conservative, has the unwavering support of his Republican base and shows no signs of struggling to raise cash. 

The way the district is drawn, the incumbent seems to have the slightest of advantages, but McCabe is focused on defining herself as a pragmatic, education-first Democrat, while talking about her experience as a pediatric doctor and medical executive.
