As of Monday, state Senator Mark Herring is the certified new attorney general of Virginia. Barring any recount drama from Mark Obenshain, Herring will leave a vacancy in Virginia’s senate.
Herndon resident Ron Meyer, 24, has announced his candidacy on Tuesday for the empty Loudon County seat. Meyer is a public relations professional who contributes conservative political analysis to Fox News. Jon Whitbeck, chairman of the Republican Party’s 10th Congressional District Committee, announced his candidacy Monday.
Both candidates stress their continued support for Mark Obenshain, Herring’s opponent.
