Barbara Comstock announced today that she will vie for the GOP nomination for retiring Rep. Frank Wolf’s (R.-Va.) seat in the 10th District.
Comstock is the first to announce her bid for the highly competitive seat. She is familiar to the Virginia political arena, formerly serving as an aide to Rep. Wolf, a current state legislator and an advisor to many Republicans.
In her written statement, she stressed, “I am running for Congress because I believe my strong record as a common sense conservative leader is what is needed in Congress. I know how to effectively fight for Northern Virginia’s hard working taxpayers having first learned from Congressman Wolf working in his congressional office,” according to The Washington Post.
