Democrat Susan Platt has filed to run for Lt. Governor. She was formerly Joe Biden’s chief of staff of his Senate office for two years in the 1990’s. Now Platt lives in Great Falls and runs her own consulting firm.
Platt’s entry into the race means there are three Democrats running for Lt. Governor and three Republicans also running for the office. Other Democrats running for the office are two former US attorneys Gene Rossi and Justin Fairfax who previously ran for Attorney General in a primary in 2013 against Mark Herring.
Republican candidates for Lt. Governor are Delegate Glenn R. Davis Jr. (Virginia Beach) and state Senators. Bryce E. Reeves (Spotsylvania) and Jill Holtzman Vogel (Fauquier).
Democrat and Republican candidates will compete in primaries for their party’s nomination on June 13th.
