The Freitas Campaign Begins

10887989_789599264467654_2139203000_nIn case you haven’t heard, Nick Freitas of Culpeper County is running for Virginia House of Delegates in the 30th District.  He is seeking the Republican Party nod over incumbent Ed Scott.

Delegate Scott has served in the House since 2004 and has not fielded a Republican challenger since 2005.  However, he has drawn the ire of some conservative and libertarian Republicans due to his support of the 2013 transportation tax increase, a tax increase which in the 2013 elections led to the defeat of both Delegate Bev Sherwood (29th-Frederick County) and Delegate Joe May (33rd-Loudoun County).

On Thursday, January 8th, the Freitas campaign will officially begin at 6 PM at the Silk Mill Grille in Orange, VA.  Their featured guest is Susan Stimpson.  Mrs. Stimpson, who ran for the GOP nod for Lieutenant Governor in 2013, is also running for office this year, challenging Speaker of the House of Delegates Bill Howell (28th-Stafford County).
