On Saturday Ben Hixon won his party’s nomination to challenge Nick Freitas in the 30th district of the House of Delegates. Hixon won the democrat nomination by one vote at his party’s convention.
Hixon moved to Virginia (Culpeper) 8 months ago. Delegate Freitas has served longer in the House of Delegates than Hixon has lived in Virginia!
The openly gay, computer programmer, Hixon says he is a “Progressive Libertarian” (whatever that means) and a cross between Bernie Sanders and the ACLU! (Hixon is a big supporter of Obamacare which certainly is not a libertarian position.)
Nick Freitas is a well liked Republican delegate with a sterling conservative record during his first term in office. Hixon will be no threat.
