GREAT FALLS - There are only three weeks left until Election Day and the race for the area’s representative in the House of Delegates is heating up.

The two candidates vying to represent District 34, which includes Great Falls, McLean and parts of Vienna, in the Virginia General Assembly debated at the Great Falls Grange on Thursday evening, Oct. 12. The event was hosted by the Great Falls Citizens Association, an organization that does not endorse candidates but encourages a well-informed community.

Incumbent Democrat Del. Kathleen Murphy of McLean was at ease throughout the event, prodding the debate moderator to make sure the debate started promptly at 7:30 and ended on time. A Washington Nationals game was scheduled to start at 8 o’clock and the debate was scheduled to end at 9 o’clock, and she was determined to catch the ending.
