Virginia House majority leader Morgan Griffith, R-Salem, is hoping to challenge long-time Rep. Rick Boucher for the 9th District Congressional seat, reports The Roanoke Times .
“It’s going to take a lot of time and money, but I believe it can be done,” Griffith told the paper this afternoon. “I just have to make sure there’s nothing I’ve overlooked.” Griffith reportedly has been calling GOP leaders today to gauge support for a run at Boucher’s seat.
Griffith has until March 1 to file as a Republican candidate for Congress.
