Scott to face Libertarian, Republican challengers

July 23, 2010 6:20 am by

There are at least 2 challengers in the running for Democrat Bobby Scott’s 3rd Congressional District seat this fall: previously announced Libertarian candidate James Quigley and Republican standard-bearer Chuck Smith.

Earlier this year, Candidate Smith was in the running for the Republican nomination for Virginia’s 2nd District, which seems to be his actual district of residence.

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.
