Del. Bob Marshall Joins GOP Field for U.S. Senate Nomination

January 12, 2012

Conservative Republican Del. Bob Marshall is challenging a former Republican governor for a U.S. Senate seat this year for the second time in four years.

Marshall says he will announce his plans and file federal campaign papers next week, but he has already created his own campaign organization in Virginia. Marshall registered his committee, Bob Marshall for Senate Inc., with the State Corporation Commission on Monday.

He enters a crowded field of four candidates led by frontrunner George Allen, a former governor who is trying to win back the Senate seat he lost six years ago to Democrat Jim Webb. Tea party organizer Jamie Radtke, E.W. Jackson and David W. McCormick are already in the June primary.

Marshall narrowly lost the GOP nomination in 2008 to former Gov. Jim Gilmore.
