January 11, 2010 3:56 pm by

Hampton resident James Quigley has announced that he will challenge incumbent Democrat Bobby Scott for the 3rd District Congressional Seat as a candidate of the Libertarian Party. Rumors have “Urban Conservative” Coby Dillard considering seeking the Republican nomination to run against Scott. Since being elected to the seat in 1992, Scott has run unopposed 5 times; none of his 4 challengers have managed more than 31% of the vote.

Virginia’s 3rd congressional district covers all of the City of Portsmouth, parts of the Cities of Hampton, Newport News, Norfolk and Richmond, all of the counties of Charles City, New Kent, and Surry, and part of the counties of Henrico and Prince George.
