Early life and education

Wexton is from Leesburg, Virginia. Her father and mother were senior economists at the United States Department of the Treasury and the Commodity Futures Trading Commission, respectively.[1]

Wexton received a BA from the University of Maryland, College Park. She then enrolled at the College of William & Mary School of Law, and received a Juris Doctor in 1995.[1][2] At William & Mary, she was a member of Phi Delta Phi, a legal honor society.[3]


Wexton is a partner in The Laurel Brigade Law Group. She served as a substitute judge in Loudoun County, Virginia, and beginning in 2001,[4] as an Assistant Commonwealth’s Attorney where she successfully prosecuted Clara Jane Schwartz for the murder of her (Schwartz's) father, Robert Schwartz.[5] Wexton ran for Loudoun County Commonwealth’s Attorney in the 2011 elections, losing to Jim Plowman, an incumbent.[6][7]

After Mark Herring, who represented the 33rd district in the Virginia Senate, won the 2013 election to serve as the Attorney General of Virginia, Wexton declared her candidacy in the special election to fill the seat.[6] In the Democratic primary, Wexton defeated Herndon Town Councilor Sheila Olem.[8] In a campaign ad, Wexton spoke of her experience defending victims of rape and assault, and pledged "fight just as hard against tea party Republicans who would take away a woman’s health care and her right to choose, even in cases of rape and incest". The Republican Party of Virginia criticized the ad, saying it compared Tea Party activists to rapists; Wexton's campaign denied the comparison.[9] She faced Republican John Whitbeck and Republican-turned-Independent Joe T. May in the January 2014 special election, and won 53%–38%–10%.[10] She assumed office on January 24, 2014[11] and was re-elected in the November 2015 general election.

In April 2017, Wexton announced that she would run in Virginia’s 10th congressional district election, 2018.[12] Her state senate district overlaps with the congressional district around Leesburg and Sterling. In June 2018, she won a six-way primary to become the Democratic nominee for the November 2018 general election,[13] in which she defeated Republican incumbent Barbara Comstock.[14]

Personal life

Wexton married Andrew Wexton in 2001, at the age of 33.[1] The couple has two sons.[8]
