Delegate David Reid (D-Loudoun), fresh off a re-election win, has announced he will run for Congress representing the 10th district where the current Congressional representative Jennifer Wexton (D-Loudouon) is not running again due to health problems.
Eileen Filler-Corn (D-Fairfax), former Speaker of the House of Delegates, is also running to be the Congressional nominee, although she does not live in the district. (That is not a requirement for a Congress.) State Senator Jennifer Boysko (D-Loudoun) is also running. Until today many thought Loudon’s Chairman of the Board of Supervisors, Phyllis Randal would seek the Democrat nomination to run in the 10th but she made it clear on her Facebook page that she will not. She said “Having spoken about the matter in great detail over this past week we have concluded that the best place for me and our family at this point in time is for me to continuing spending 100% of my time, energy and focus on the job that I love. As such I will not be a candidate for Congress in VA-10.”
On the Republican side only former candidate in the 10th, Mike Clancy, has announced a run for the seat. Clancy is an attorney and a technology company executive.
