Bolger drops out, Foust secures Democratic nod for 10th district

Fairfax County Supervisor John Foust (D-Dranesville) officially became the Democratic nominee for the 10th Congressional District on Monday after Oak Hill attorney Richard Bolger (D) dropped out of the race, leaving Foust as the only Democrat to file for the party nomination.

Democrats to pick 10th District delegation

The Prince William Democratic Committee will hold an unassembled caucus from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., on March 29 at Haymarket Town Hall to choose delegates to a convention for the 10th Congressional District. This is the first step in determining who will be the Democratic candidate for the 10th District. The caucus in Haymarket is being held to elect 22 delegates and four alternates to the Democratic convention, to be held April 26. At the convention, the convention delegates will chose the Democratic candidate for congress. As of press time, two men are running for that nomination: Richard Bolger and John Foust.

PW likely to miss state-run primaries

While Virginia as a whole is known for lousy turnout in primary elections, Prince William County voters aren't even being given the option of participating in a state-run election this June. As of this week, none of the federal seats that include the greater Prince William County area are set to settle on their nominees in open primaries. None of the incumbents seeking re-election are being challenged by members of their own parties. At the same time, the Democratic and Republican parties are nominating their candidates at party-run functions, which is designed to limit public participation.
