How exciting! Add Dick Black’s name to the list of “noted conservative swashbucklers” allegedly vying to replace Frank Wolf that currently includes Tareq Salahi, Barbara Comstock, John Stirrup and Ken Cuccinelli. But we don’t know why he announced his exploratory committee on Facebook yesterday, only to then have the announcement quickly removed from Republican sites. The post below has been disappeared. Oops?
For all the careful image management of retiring Frank Wolf as a “moderate” Republican (despite all evidence to the contrary BENGHAZI BENGHAZI BENGHAZI FEDERAL MARRIAGE AMENDMENT), it would seem that moderates are suddenly in short supply.
Join Senator Black’s Congressional Exploratory Committee!
I have formed an exploratory committee to run for the 10th Congressional District seat that is being vacated by Congressman Frank Wolf.
Frank has worked hard for the 10th District during his 34 years of service, and has announced today that he will not run for re-election in 2014. I invite you to join my exploratory committee which is simply a declaration that you intend to support me should I become a candidate for Congress in the 10th District.
The 10th Congressional District includes all of Loudoun County, a large portion of Prince William County, and a small portion of Fairfax County. I currently represent over 200,000 people in the 10th District*, including Loudoun and Prince William Counties
As a former member of the House of Delegates I represented parts of Sterling, Herndon, and Great Falls as well. Between my eight years in the House of Delegates and my current service in the State Senate, I have represented the majority of the 10th Congressional District.
If you would like to be a part of the Black for Congress Exploratory Committee, please contact us HERE. Also, please take a moment to vote in this poll and voice your support.
I look forward to hearing from you.
