Villanueva has been a state delegate since 2009 representing constituencies in Virginia Beach and Chesapeake. He ran on jobs and the economy. Hippen, a retired Navy master chief, ran on issues like Medicaid expansion and earned the endorsement of the Virginia Education Association.

Since January 2014, Villanueva raised $270,063, and Hippen brought in $85,442, according to data provided by the Virginia Public Access Project. Villanueva was named chair of the House Committee on Transportation in May.
