Woodbridge, VA – In a statement released earlier today, President of the Virginia Black Conservatives, Terrence Boulden, announced his support for State Senate candidate, John Whitbeck. “John is a great friend, a hard worker and will make an excellent State Senator.” He also stated, “while I consider Ron (Meyer) to be a friend and an excellent conservative activist, John Whitbeck’s background in the community as a committee chairman, an HOA president and a lawyer gives the republican party the best chance in January’s general election.”
Whitbeck is running for the republican nomination in Virginia’s 33rd State Senate district which covers parts of Fairfax and Loudoun County. The special election is to replace Attorney General Elect and former State Senator, Mark Herring.
Running against Whitbeck for the republican nomination is Ron Meyer, Jr. a 24 year-old Fox News spokesman. The two will face off in a Mass Meeting on Monday, December 16th at Park View High School in Sterling, Va. Constituents from the 33rd district are welcome to attend with registration to vote beginning at 6:30pm and ballots being cast around 7:30pm.
The general election will be held on January 7th, 2014 against democrat Jennifer Wexton and former Loudoun county republican (running as an independent) Delegate Joe May.
