    Comstock officially enters 10th Congressional District race

    Virginia Del. Barbara Comstock (R-34th) officially signaled her intent to run to succeed Frank Wolf in the U.S. House of Representatives with a fundraising email to supporters Tuesday, according to a POLITICO report this morning.

    A former staffer for the three-decade incumbent Wolf, Comstock was elected to a third term in the General Assembly in November, narrowly defeating Democrat Kathleen Murphy.

    Since Wolf's surprise retirement announcement in December, Comstock has been rumored as one of the strongest candidates – if not the presumptive favorite – for the Republican nomination.

    Comstock lives in McLean and represents portions of Fairfax and Loudoun counties in the state house. She was a top Virginia adviser for Mitt Romney's 2012 presidential bid.

    Another Loudoun representative to Richmond, Republican state Sen. Dick Black (R-13th) has launched an exploratory committee to study a 10th Congressional District campaign.

    Democrats John Foust, a Fairfax County supervisor, Richard Bolger, a Fairfax attorney and Sam Kubba, a Leesburg architect, have all announced plans to seek the Democratic nomination.

    We are one clown short of a 3 clown circus on the GOP side, that’s for sure.


    Black is more electable, because people know he is a solid conservative who gets results and has a solid record of achievement. He is a gentleman. I am glad he is running. Too many “more electable” Republicans have either lost or let us down. Support Black for effective change in Congress.


    Barbara Comstock is an excellent choice, she can win in the 10th District. Keeping this seat is tantamount to holding the line on the liberal encroachment from the east, I hope everyone considers supporting Comstock to keep that from happening.


    Comstock is much more electable than Black in the General Election. This election is hers to win if she can get through the Convention.
