Delegate Joe Morrissey has confirmed that he will challenge Democratic Senator Rosalyn Dance for the Democratic nomination in the June 16th district primary.
Morrissey recently moved into the Senate district from Henrico County to Richmond. In addition to Dance, he’ll face 63rd District Delegate Joseph Preston of Petersburg.
Before that, however, Morrissey will stand trial for charges of submitting falsified documents to the Henrico County Court in the final week of April.
Morrissey is expected to announce his candidacy formally on Wednesday.
