It looks like CAP’s Rich Anderson who lost his Virginia delegate seat in 2017 to Democrat Hala Ayala still has some fight in him.

Today, former Virginia Delegate Richard L. (Rich) Anderson announced his candidacy for the 51st House District.

In announcing his candidacy, Anderson stated that “public service is all I’ve known for 30 years as an Air Force officer and eight years as a Virginia legislator. I remain committed to making life better in Prince William County and across Virginia for working families. Public service is my calling, so public service is what I intend to do.”

Anderson further stated that “Prince William County has lost considerable clout in Richmond over the last two years. The 2020 legislative session is going to be crucial, and I want to restore our county’s leadership role in Richmond in building a responsible state budget, caring for Virginia veterans, addressing our transportation challenges, and crafting policy that sustains jobs and grows businesses. This takes on increased urgency in light of the current scandals engulfing the executive branch and attempts by Democrats in the legislature to enact a massive tax increase on middle-class families.”

His last campaign was sufficiently dirty to be his undoing, perhaps this go-round he will clean up his act?
