Virginia Tea Party Activist Seeks GOP Senate Nomination

December 29, 2010

Virginia Tea Party activist Jamie Radtke has filed a notice of candidacy to run for the Republican nomination for the U.S. Senate.

The Chesterfield County resident recently stepped down as chairwoman of the Virginia Tea Party Patriots. The Senate seat is held by Democrat Jim Webb, who hasn't said whether he plans to run again in 2012.

Radtke told the Richmond Times-Dispatch she plans to make a more formal announcement in January.

Other Republicans considering running against Webb include George Allen, whom Webb unseated in 2006; Del. Robert Marshall of Prince William County; and Prince William County Board of Supervisors chairman Corey Stewart.
