Following a traumatic personal loss that made national headlines, local TV news anchor Chris Hurst quit journalism to run for political office. In the first wave of elections following a polarizing US presidential race, Hurst worked to rally support from a divided community to serve as delegate for Virginia’s 12th House District. ‘Virginia 12th’ follows the entire road to Hurst’s candidacy and the young people who rallied around him in the months leading up to Election Day 2017.
