Virginia: Republican Field Still Growing for Davis’ Seat

One week out from the Republican filing deadline for the special election to fill the seat of the late Rep. Jo Ann Davis (R), the field of GOP candidates continues to grow.

This week, Williamsburg attorney and Republican activist Kevin O’Neill joined the race along with David Corderman, a retired FBI agent from Fredericksburg.

They are the latest on a growing list of Republican candidates that includes Chuck Davis, the Congresswoman’s widower and a retired firefighter, state Del. Rob Wittman, veteran and former 1st district GOP party chairman Jim Bowden, businessman and Republican activist Paul Jost and several others.

District party officials are set to meet on Nov. 10 to pick their nominee for the race. To be considered, all candidates must register with the party and have paid the $3,300 filing fee by next Wednesday.
