Prominent Virginia Beach lawyer, Tim Anderson, will not run for Attorney General, instead he will challenge Democrat Nancy Guy for delegate in the 83rd district. His official announcement is here.
From the thevirginiastar.com:
“For me, I decided I wanted to be a part of the [political] process next year and of all the races, statewide and local races, this seemed to be the best one,” Anderson said in an interview with The Virginia Star. “The 83rd is highly contested and I happen to live there, so it all just kind of fell into place.
“Right now we have all Democrats running everything and we have no say. Republicans have no say in any outcome of what happens in any law passed in Virginia and that has to change.”
“I think the time really is on us to where Republicans really need to stand up. I think a lot of people need to stand up and challenge the Democrats,” Anderson said. “We have to get in there and we have to fight like our lives depend on it because the future and the soul of Virginia is going to depend on whether Republicans can have a seat at the table of government.”
Former Virginia Beach Delegate Christopher Stolle is also planning a run for the seat in the 83rd. With redistricting occurring in 2021, we don’t yet know what our districts will look like. Stolle and Anderson could end up in different districts.
