McQuigg for Clerk
I am still getting info on this...
UPDATE: I still have not been able to get a copy of the press release, but here are the ramifications. First off, this is not new; some people were speculating on this as much as a year ago.
Anyway, the district went for Bush in 2004; but then went for Kaine in 2005 and then Webb in 2006 (54.6% for Webb). This is another district that has largely been protected due to a longer running incumbent who is well liked. Even so, Mcquigg drew a strong candidate in Earnie Porta in 2005 and she only got 54% of the vote. Assuming she does leave the seat; I would imagine Porta would be the frontrunner for the dem nomination and also the general election.
The other interesting situation is that McQuigg ran for this seat from Occoquan District Supervisor. The current Occoquan supervisor was Corey Stewart who just won PWC BOS Chair. He would have been the best positioned to run in her place, but I am not sure he would want to give up chairman of one of the largest counties in Virginia to be in the HOD. This creates a problem for the GOP in that now they have to replace both a HOD seat and Supervisor.
So far I know of no potential candidates, but I am sure they will emerge soon.
