A Charlottesville lawyer plans to run as a Republican for the seat of state Sen. Creigh Deeds. Elsewhere, two incumbent commonwealth’s attorneys announce bids for re-election.
“T.J.” Aldous, the Charlottesville lawyer, described himself as a “committed conservative” as he told The Daily Progress he hopes to unseat Deeds, D-Bath County, who’s been in office since 2001. Aldous’ practice includes estate planning and business law, the paper reports.
In Montgomery County, Commonwealth’s Attorney Brad Finch tells The Roanoke Times he hopes to win another term. Meanwhile, Culpeper County prosecutor Gary Close also will seek re-election, reports the Culpeper Star-Exponent.
