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.
