A foreign policy advisor to President Trump Bert Mizusawa has filed to run for Senate against Democrat Tim Kaine. He is the fifth Republican to file and will face the other Republicans in a primary on June 12. The other four are Delegate Nick Freitas (R-Culpeper), Corey Stewart chairman of the board of supervisors in Prince William County, E.W. Jackson previously a candidate for Lt. Governor and Ivan Raiklin a businessman with no political experience.
Bert Mizusawa, a resident of McLean, is a retired major general in the U.S. Army Reserve. He already has $100,000 in donor commitments. His kickoff will be later this week.
UPDATE: I have been contacted by Dr. Minerva Diaz who has also filed to run for Senate. She said,
I’m a conservative and life-long Republucan who has helped many elected officials win their races. You can find more about me in Linkedin Dr. Minerva Diaz.
She is also on Facebook. We apologize for the omission.
