Jackson formally files candidacy papers for GOP lieutenant governor nomination
E.W. Jackson announced on Monday that he has filed with the Republican Party of Virginia as a candidate seeking the Republican Nomination for Lieutenant Governor of Virginia. The nominee will be chosen by delegates at the May 18th RPV Convention:
“This morning I filed the documents required by RPV to become an official candidate for the Republican Nomination for lieutenant governor. I also paid the required fee and the voluntary fee of $10,000. While we all wish these kinds of financial barriers were not necessary, conventions cost money, and my campaign is proud to join with Ken Cuccinelli and the other candidates to do our part. I am grateful to the many contributors who have helped us reach the next phase of our campaign,” Jackson said.
Jackson made an unsuccessful bid for the GOP Senate nomination in 2012, falling short in a primary won by former governor and U.S. senator George Allen.
