As we know the Virginia Supreme Court drew new boundary lines for both the House of Delegates and the State Senate. The new House of Delegate maps may be found here and the Senate maps here.
VPAP.org has listed candidates running in both the House and the Senate.
In the Senate, the most interesting race on the Republican side appears to be in the newly formed 1st District which includes the counties of Clarke, Frederick, Warren, and Shenandoah. Eight candidates have filed to run, they face a primary on June 20th:
Brandon H Monk
Primaries will be held on June 20th for those House and Senate districts where it is necessary and the local political party has chosen a primary as their method of nomination.
What is the filing deadline?
House of Delegates District 67: Delegate Margaret Ransone of Westmoreland County announced that she is not running again.
Immediately after Ransone’s announcement, Hillary Pugh Kent of Richmond County announced her candidacy for the newly configured Virginia House of Delegates District 67 being vacated by Ransone. In her announcement, Kent promised to be a “commonsense conservative serving the people of the Northern Neck”. Kent is, of course, a Republican. The proximity of her announcement to Ransone’s suggests this was set up beforehand.
Looks as though the long-suffering residents of the Northern Neck will be stuck with another holyroller rightwingnutjob. Ransone and Kent: Tweedle-Dumb and Tweedle-Dumber.
Meanwhile, rumors are flying among the local Republicans that Ransone is the hand-picked successor to Rob Wittman (R, VA-01), who will announce that he is not running for re-election in 2024 so he can run for governor in 2025.
