Former Del. Hala Ayala is trying to get back to the General Assembly, setting up a primary showdown with a former colleague.
Ayala announced her campaign for the newly-configured 33rd Senate District on Wednesday.
“Right now, too many Virginia families are feeling squeezed,” she wrote on Facebook. “That’s a worry I know firsthand as a single mom, and it’s why I ran for elected office in the first place — to fight for families like mine who didn’t have a voice.”
All seats in the General Assembly will be available in the 2023 campaign under new districts established by the Virginia Supreme Court.
The 33rd District covers northeastern Prince William County and south-central Fairfax County, including Woodbridge, Occoquan and Lake Ridge.
