Lynwood Lewis for Virginia State SenateLynwood Lewis, a lawyer and Democratic state delegate from Accomack County, makes an economic pitch in his television spot that begins airing Wednesday in Hampton Roads.

The ad highlights his work with lawmakers in both parties to promote space launches from NASA’s Wallops Island Flight Facility, support for this year’s landmark transportation funding package, and a pro-job philosophy reflected through business and education policy.

Lewis hopes to succeed state Sen. Ralph Northam, D-Norfolk, who was elected Virginia’s next lieutenant governor, in the 6th Senate District that covers part of Norfolk, a Virginia Beach sliver, and all of Accomack, Mathews and Northampton counties..
