Bob Marshall Set to Make it Official

Tim Craig

Virginia Del. Robert G. Marshall of Prince William will announce Monday he is a Republican candidate for the U.S. Senate.

Marshall, who is known for his conservative views on social issues and taxes, has scheduled a 1:30 p.m. press conference at the state capitol to make his announcement.

Marshall will challenge former governor James S. Gilmore III for the GOP nomination. Marshall says Gilmore is too moderate on some issues, including his past support for abortion rights during the first trimester.

"I did a lot of calling around the state and I got an excellent response from Republican Party officials," Marshall said. "I just concluded I matched their aspiration for the views they think should be expressed and defended by a Republican candidate for the U.S. Senate."
