Governor Kaine Sets Date for Special Election

Governor Tim Kaine has scheduled a special election for December 11th to fill the U.S. House seat left vacant by the death of Congresswoman Jo Ann Davis.

Congresswoman Davis was a strong proponent for 2nd Amendment rights and she was a regular attendee at the Fredericksburg Friends of NRA banquet.

At least a half-dozen Republicans, including Davis' widower, Chuck Davis, have either announced plans to run for the office or interest in a possible run.

Republican Davis died October 6th after a two-year battle with breast cancer at the age of 57. She had represented the 1st District seat that runs from Prince William county to Newport News since 2000.
