Democrat Traci Dippert has abandoned her run against Senator Bryce Reeves in Virginia’s 17th Senate district. Dippert said she was unable to continue teaching and meet the demands of a race for Senate,[read_more]
“I have spent nearly 2 decades in the teaching profession and it is my first passion, my financial stability and must come first. While it was an excruciating decision, I know I have made the right one for myself professionally, as well as personally.”
In the first quarter of this year Senator Reeves raised more money than any other Senator. He currently has $463,177 to spend on his campaign. Traci Dippert has a balance of $51,261.
No other candidates have filed to run in the 17th district but Democrats are hoping to recruit someone to run.
