Five Possible Contenders for Eisenberg's Seat
A Democratic State House insider reports there are five possible contenders for the party's nomination to replace Del. Albert C. Eisenberg (D-Arlington), who announced today he will not seek reelection this year.
The candidates include environmental activist and blogger Miles Grant, social services activist Patrick Hope, Democratic activist Adam Parkhomenko, Alfonso Lopez, director of Virginia's Legislative Office on Capitol Hill, and Andres Tobar, executive director of the Shirlington Employment Center.
The nominee will be heavily favored to win the general election in the overwhelmingly Democratic 47th District. If either Alfonso or Andres win, they would be the first Latino Democrat in the General Assembly.
