    Orginal story: 11:02 a.m.

    Local Republicans will select their nominee to replace attorney general-elect Mark Herring, a Democrat, in a mass meeting Dec. 16 beginning at 6 p.m. at Park View High School in Sterling.

    The field of contestants grew by one Monday, when former state Del. Joe May announced his intention to continue his service as a Republican in the General Assembly. There had been speculation that May was going to run as an independent.

    John Whitbeck, the 10th Congressional District Republican Committee Chairman, and Ron Meyer, a Herndon public relations professional and conservative pundit, announced their campaigns last week.

    According to the 33rd Senate Republican Legislative District Committee's call for a mass meeting, “all legal and qualified voters of the 33rd State Senate District under the laws of the Commonwealth of Virginia … who are in accord with the principles of the Republican Party” may participate.

    Additionally, voters cannot have participated in a nomination “process of a party other than the Republican party after March 1, 2004,” though “a single exception shall be approved for a voter that renounces affiliation with any other party in writing.”

    Democrats have nominated Leesburg attorney Jennifer Wexton as their nominee. No date has been set for the special election.
