Leesburg Democrat exits 10th Congressional District race

Leesburg Democrat Sam Kubba is withdrawing from contention to be his party's nominee in this November's 10th Congressional District of Virginia election.

Mr. Kubba, who has never held elected office, in a Feb. 17 letter listed an upcoming surgery, fundraising challenges and a corrosive political environment in Washington as reasons for his bowing out.

Fairfax County Supervisor John Foust is viewed as the frontrunner for the Democratic nomination, which will be decided through an April 26 convention. Fairfax attorney Richard Bolger is also in the running.

The 10th District seat is coming open with the retirement of three-decade incumbent Frank Wolf, a Republican.
