    UPDATE: Joe May to run for Senate of Virginia in special election

    Update: 2:55 p.m.

    In an email sent this afternoon, Joe May confirmed he's running for the Republican nomination to succeed Democrat Mark Herring, the attorney general-elect, in the Senate of Virginia.

    With May in the running for the Senate 33rd District, the GOP primary becomes a three-way race. 10th Congressional District Republican Party Chairman John Whitbeck and Herndon public relations professional and conservative pundit Ron Meyer announced their candidacies last week.

    Democrats have nominated Leesburg attorney Jennifer Wexton as their candidate.


    Original story: 2:23 p.m.

    Long-time member of the Virginia House of Delegates, Republican Joe May, will announce today that he'll seek the GOP nomination to replace attorney general-elect Mark Herring in the state senate.

    May is set to hold a 4:30 p.m. press conference at his business, EIT, in Sterling.

    According to an advertisement placed by May in the Times-Mirror, the veteran Republican “wants to keep partisan Washington politics from coming to Richmond.”

    May held the House of Delegates 33rd District seat for two decades before being defeated by conservative Dave LaRock in a Republican primary in June.

    There was some speculation that May would run as an independent, first in the House 33rd district general election and then, after Herring's victory, in the special election for the Senate 33rd District.

    According to the advertisement, May will be running through the party he's belonged to his entire career.

    “I'm asking for your vote and your support in the Republican Firehouse Primary Election to be held in the coming weeks,” May states in the ad.

    2 weeks infighting ahead.


    yes.  he’s a carpetbagger like Wexton, who also lives south of Leesburg like May


    If Joe May wants to run maybe he should follow John Whitbeck’s example and learn a few racist jokes. Rom Myers is the only principled conservative in this race!


    Doesn’t Joe May live a few miles outside of the 33rd State Senate District lines?
