Republicans choose nominee for special election

A 12-year veteran of the House of Delegates is the Republicans’ choice for a special election. John Cosgrove (pictured) of Chesapeake wants to succeed retiring GOP Senator Harry Blevins. Blevins is stepping down for health reasons, and his replacement will be elected August 6th.   Democrats will pick someone to oppose Cosgrove later this spring.
