Six candidates will seek support this Saturday from local Republicans in the 10th Congressional District Firehouse Primary.
Congressman Frank Wolf, who has served since 1981, is retiring at the end of this term, and Virginia’s Tenth Congressional District Republican Committee is holding a party canvass to select a candidate to take Rep. Wolf’s seat.
The Republic Firehouse Primary for the 10th Congressional District is from 10 a.m. – 3 p.m. this Saturday, April 26.
The candidates are (in alphabetical order by last name): Virginia Del. Barbara Comstock, Stephen Hollingshead, Howie Lind, Virginia Del. Bob Marshall, Marc Savitt and Rob Wasinger.
The party canvass is open to all registered voters “who are in accord with the principles of the Republican Party,” according to the Tenth Congressional District Republic Committee. Participants will need a valid photo ID and will need to sign a statement of support. Absentee, proxy or provisional voting is not allowed.
The 10th Congressional District covers Manassas and Manassas Park cities, Loudoun County and portions of Fairfax and Prince William Counties. It also covers Winchester and Frederick and Clarke counties. (See a map of Virginia's 10th Congressional District.)
