Patrick Alan Hope (born March 6, 1972) is an American politician. Since 2010, he has served in the Virginia House of Delegates, representing the 47th district in Arlington County, outside Washington, D.C. Hope is a member of the Democratic Party.[1]

Early life and education[edit]

Hope was born in San Antonio. He attended St. Mary's University there, receiving a B.A. degree in 1993. He then moved to Washington to attend the Catholic University of America, where he received an M.A. in 1996 and a J.D. from the Columbus School of Law in 2001.[1]

House of Delegates[edit]

Hope has served on the House committees on Courts of Justice from 2010 to 2011, Health, Welfare and Institutions since 2010, and Militia, Police and Public Safety since 2012.[2]

On February 8, 2019, after two women had publicly accused Democratic Lieutenant Governor Justin Fairfax of sexual assault, Hope announced that he would introduce articles of impeachment against Fairfax on February 11, three days later, if the latter did not resign by then.[3] Within days, he backed off the plan to begin impeachment proceedings, saying that he had received a lot of feedback that made it clear that more conversations needed to take place before moving forward.[4]

Electoral history[edit]

Hope won a five-way Democratic primary in June 2009 to replace retiring Delegate Al Eisenberg as the 47th district delegate.[5] The following November, he won the general election with almost 64% of the vote against two opponents.[6]
