(AP) A self-described "conservative independent" has entered the 1st Congressional District race.

Lucky Narain, 28, joins Republican Del. Rob Wittman and Democrat Phil Forgit on the December 11th special election ballot to succeed the late Rep. Jo Ann Davis.

Narain said he attended Christopher Newport University and studied law at Fordham University and public policy at Carnegie Mellon University. He's an Army Reservist and served in the Peace Corps.

He formally entered the race Wednesday, The Free Lance-Star of Fredericksburg reported. The district stretches from Hampton Roads to the outer suburbs of northern Virginia, spreading into the Northern Neck and taking in most of Fredericksburg.

Davis died October 6th after a two-year struggle with breast cancer.
