Goode will not run in Fifth in ’10

Former Fifth District Congressman Virgil Goode has released a statement today announcing that he will not run for the Republican Party nomination for the seat in 2010.

“It is my hope and expectation that Republicans will nominate a conservative who will oppose the record deficits and debt of the current administration, will support secure borders and oppose amnesty for illegals, will recognize and reduce the huge threat that terrorists pose for our country, will support pro-life issues, and will support the traditional definition of marriage of one man and one woman. I look forward to supporting and working for that candidate in 2010,” Goode said in the statement.

Goode lost his re-election bid in the Fifth in November to Democrat Tom Perriello by 727 votes. He had served in Congress since his first election in 1996.
