City Councilman to be handed the 20th district seat of Virginia.

Virginia State Delegate Chris Saxman (pictured on left), from the 20th district seat of Virginia, has removed his name from the ballot this November.  In an email letter to his supporters the four term Delegate stated “I have recently felt pulled to pursue new opportunities to serve my community and our Commonwealth, I believe the time has come for me to step away from my current elected position.” 

It appears, according to the Rockingham GOP Chairman and The News Leader, that no public nomination process will be sought by the Republican Party to replace Saxman.  Instead, it is anticipated that Staunton City Councilman Richard (Dickie) Bell will be handed the nomination on Saturday, July 18th, in a closed door process by the chairmen of the Staunton city, Augusta county, Rockingham county, and Highland county units of the Republican party.

We will stay up to date as this story unfolds.
