Sen. Hurt to run for Congress

State Sen. Robert Hurt (R-Chatham) says he’ll challenge Rep. Tom Perriello for the 5th District seat in Congress next year.

Hurt, a Chatham lawyer who has served in the Virginia Senate since 2008, says Washington needs a conservative voice for his district, reports the Star-Tribune.

Although Hurt faces opposition from other Republican nominees, he will likely be the front runner against Perriello, a Democrat from Albemarle County currently serving his first two-year term.
