Morrisey to challenge to Dance in Democratic primary

Featured image from We did say “Never Underestimate Joe Morrissey”

The Richmond Times Dispatch reports:

Joe Morrissey, the former Democratic state delegate and Richmond mayoral candidate, said he may challenge a Democratic incumbent for a seat in the Virginia Senate this fall.

Morrissey said in an interview that he had begun knocking on doors and handing out literature in the Fulton neighborhood as a part of his “exploration” for a run in the 16th Senate District, which includes part of Richmond, Chesterfield County, Hopewell and Petersburg.

“I intend to go from Fulton and start moving south,” Morrissey said. He also said he had purchased a home on North 22nd Street in Church Hill, within the district’s boundaries, in case he ultimately decides to run.

So, if he runs, we get him as a neighbor? What a deal! Glad he is so committed to Church Hill.
Any idea which area is currently graced with his residence?

Glad that he is running. He is actually talking to residents and canvassing. He has my vote. Hopefully he can overcome the corrupt DNC machine.

Never seen or heard from Dance. She is just like Newbill in her distan for voters.

1400 or 1600 block of N. 22nd St, I don’t think that is Union Hill. And this is not really news, it has been out there for a month or so, and before that there were rumors.

@11, he still does, a big impressive one. He also bought way up on 22nd St., 1400 or 1600 block.

1400 block of N 22nd. And we are in Fairmont.

Though when I looked at the tax record it looked SAF. How does a charity do a transfer to and individual and call it family transfer?

And speaking of shady, this was the same house that asked for volunteers to come and help work on it via WTVR years ago. Supposedly it was for vets. More than 50 people showed up. Yet not a single vet EVER lived in it. It has sat empty since completed…
