Washington DC is not in Virginia, it is not in any state. Washington DC is a district of its own.

Washington DC is technically its own state. It is in the District of Columbia, which is actually what the DC stands for. But outside of the district of Columbia, Washington DC is located in Maryland.

Washington DC is the national capital. Technically, it does not belong to a state. Either way, DC is not a state, so there can be no state capital in it.
