Arlington's Foster May Run for Attorney General
David M. Foster, former chairman of the Arlington County School Board, announced today that he is considering running for the Republican nomination for attorney general next year.
Foster, 54, a long-time member of the Arlington County Republican Committee, served on school board from 2000 to 2007.
State Sen. Ken Cuccinelli II (R-Fairfax), one of Northern Virginia's few conservative elected officials with grass-roots support across the state, recently announced plans to run. Former House of Delegates member Paul Harris and U.S. attorney John L. Brownlee, the top prosecutor for Virginia's western district, also are considering running.
Attorney General Robert F. McDonnell is expected to run for governor and Lt. Gov. Bill Bolling plans to seek re-election.
Foster is co-chair of the antitrust and trade regulation practice group of the international Washington, D.C., law firm of Fulbright & Jaworski. He is a member of McDonnell's Internet Safety Task Force, a major, precedent-setting project of the attorney general's office.
