GOP, Democratic Primaries Set for Tuesday
Republican primaries set for U.S. Senate race and 11th congressional district, Democratic primaries set for 8th congressional district.
Northern Virginians head to the polls on Tuesday, June 12 to vote in Republican primaries for the U.S. Senate race in Virginia and the 11th congressional district and a Democratic primary for the 8th congressional district.
Republican Primary - Senate
In the Senate Republican Party Primary, voters across the state will choose among George F. Allen, Jamie L. Radtke, R.G. "Bob" Marshall and E.W. Jackson. The winner will run against Democrat Tim Kaine.
Republican Primary - Eleventh Congressional District
In a Republican Party Primary in the 11th congressional district, voters will choose between Chris S. Perkins and Ken L. Vaughn. The winner of the primary will face Democratic Congressman Gerald Connolly. Independent Mark Gibson is also running in the 11th District. He is required to gather 1,000 signatures to get onto the November ballot. The deadline is Tuesday.
No Primary in Tenth Congressional District
Republican Congressman Frank Wolf, who has represented Northern Virginia's 10th District since 1981, has no opposition from fellow Republicans. He will face Democrat Kristin Cabral in the general election, as possibly J. Kevin Chisholm, who is reportedly gathering signatures for a run as an independent candidate.
