BIG NEWS IN THE 62nd!
Riley Ingram is going to be challenged from the right and has even suggested he will run as an independent. His possible opponent is Joe Leming www.joeleming.com Chairman of the Prince George County Board of Supervisors. The 62nd District (Part of Prince George, Hopewell, Chesterfield, and Henrico) is heavily Republican, so the race will most likely be fought on the right. Ingram supported Mark Warner's budget and has staked out many sensible positions...which has infuriated the conservative base. Ingram, a well known real estate broker, was elected in 1992 over Incumbent Democrat Beasley Jones (deceased). This race will be a barnburner and will be one of the hottest intra-party contests in the state if it materializes.
UPDATE: No one who runs in the primary can file as an independent
