Delegate Frank Hargrove, (R-Hanover), a Virginia Gentleman through and through, is not running for re-election to the Virginia House of Delegates. The 55th District that he represents, largely a Hanover County District, is as red as it gets in Virginia.
The upcoming Republican primary for this seat will be tantamount to winning the general election--thus, the GOP primary will be where the action is on this race---more coming on the three GOP candidates vying for the nomination later.
For now, a big thank you to Delegate Frank Hargrove for a wonderful record of service to America, his state, and his beloved Hanover County. From his legislative website:
