Three Democratic candidates have expressed their interest in running for the 5th Congressional District seat in 2018.

On February 18, 2017, at the monthly Democratic breakfast, Siva Vaidhyanathan, the Robertson Professor in UVA’s Department of Media Studies, moderated a panel with deep and wide experience in media, news and journalism:

Brian Wheeler, executive director of Charlottesville Tomorrow
Bo Sacks, president/publisher of Precision Media Group
Dahlia Lithwick, senior editor of Slate
