Roanoke-area Delegates Races
The Roanoke Times has this rundown of the regional House of Delegates races both contested and uncontested. Of the nine incumbents running in the Roanoke and New River Valleys, only two are currently facing opposition.
According to the RT, Delegate Ward Armstrong (D-Henry Co.) will be challenged by republican David Young. Delegate Allen Dudley (R-Rocky Mount) will be challenged by Democrat Eric Ferguson.
The most interesting item is this:
Barbara Chrisley, who ran an unsuccessful Republican campaign against [Pulaski Del. Benny] Keister in 1999, said Thursday that she is seriously considering switching parties and challenging [Christiansburg Del. Dave] Nutter this year. The retired Radford University professor said she will likely make her decision soon. . . ."I'm recognizing that my values are very much aligning with the Democratic Party," she said.
Sounds like it's a good thing Chrisley was unsuccessful in her bid against Keister.
