5 Seeking GOP Nomination in 22nd District Primary

August 22, 2011

Tuesday is primary day for several districts across the Commonwealth.

In Central Virginia, GOP candidates are vying for a seat in the newly created 22nd District in the Virginia Senate. The new area includes Buckingham, Louisa and Fluvanna counties.

Since it is a product of redistricting, there's no incumbent in the 22nd District. Five Republican candidates are campaigning for the party's nomination. They include:

- Claudia Tucker, a member of the Amherst County Board of Supervisors

- Mark Peake, an attorney who also serves on the Commonwealth Transportation Board

- Tom Garrett, the Commonwealth's Attorney for Louisa County

- Brian Bates, a member of the Buckingham County Board of Supervisors

- Bryan Rhode, a prosecutor from Richmond
