Yesterday, a fellow blogger at the Mason Conservative announced that Delegate Bob Marshall will be running for the GOP nomination to replace retiring Representative Frank Wolf (VA-10). Given that I have not heard an official announcement, I decided to investigate the matter for myself.
According to my source, Marshall has not yet reached a decision and is still weighing his options and chances. Barbara Comstock is the clear front-runner at this point and has garnered many endorsements, including RPV Chairman Pat Mullins. Like Shak Hill, I was irked by Mullins’ endorsement, considering it to be inappropriate.
So will Marshall decide to run? Knowing what I know, coupled with the fact that he is no stranger to seeking higher office (having run for U.S. Senate previously in 2008 & 2012) I would rate it as highly likely and I would expect an official announcement one way or the other very soon.
