Va. Republicans Search for Successor to Robert Hurt

November 15, 2010

Virginia Republicans have begun their search for a successor to U.S. Rep.-elect Robert Hurt in the state Senate.

The Roanoke Times reports that GOP officials in Virginia's 19th Senate district issued a call for nominees over the weekend.

The party has scheduled a November 23 canvass, or firehouse primary. Gov. Bob McDonnell will then put the winner on a special election ballot.

The Times reports that the Senate seat has already attracted five contenders.

Republicans Bill Stanley, Fred Shanks, Brenda Bowman and Melvin Adams plan to run in the canvass. Meanwhile, Democrat Hank Davis plans to seek the legislative seat for his party.

Republicans are also holding a November 23 canvass for the House of Delegates seat of U.S. Rep.-elect Morgan Griffith.
