Who is Steve Martin?

Stephen Holliday "Steve" Martin is an American politician of the Republican Party. He was a member of the Virginia House of Delegates 1988–1994. Since 1994 he has been a member of the Senate of Virginia. He currently represents the 11th district, including parts of Chesterfield County and the city of Colonial Heights, in the southern suburbs of Richmond.

In 1987, Martin defeated incumbent Democrat Leslie Saunders for the 67th District House of Delegates seat, 51%-49%. In 1989, Saunders challenged Martin for the seat, but Martin won 55%-45%. Due to redistricting, Martin was redrawn into the 27th District in 1991, and won the House of Delegates seat unopposed, and was re-elected in 1993. In February 1994, Martin won a special election to the state Senate in the 11th District after Robert Russell resigned after being convicted of embezzlement. He received 75% of the vote in a four-way race. Martin was easily re-elected to the seat in 1995, 1999, 2003, 2007, and 2011.

Senator Martin serves as one of two Virginia state chairmen for the American Legislative Exchange Council.
