Henrico County Sheriff Mike Wade says he is running for Congress in the 7th District. Longtime Sheriff Mike Wade is expected to challenge freshman Congressman Dave Brat for the Republican nomination to represent the 7th district.
He says “we need action, not rhetoric.”
Brat says he welcomes a debate.
The 7th District Republican Committee meets Saturday (1/9) to decide whether to nominate its candidate for the seat through a convention or a primary.
Wade is expected to make a formal announcement this week.
