A House with No Fredericks?
It looks like the House of Delegates will no longer have a Frederick among its members.
Amy Frederick announced this morning that she is withdrawing from the race to replace her husband -- delegate and ousted party chairman Jeffrey M. Frederick -- in his Prince William County district.
In an email that blasts House Speaker William J. Howell and the Republican leadership, Frederick said she is "not interested in running for office to serve under broken leadership, where the speaker compromises principle for what he perceives as immediate political gain."
"Unfortunately, some in the leadership of the Republican Party have demonstrated a greater interest in playing politics than in advancing our conservative principles and making life better for the families and the citizens of Virginia,'' she wrote.
Jeffrey Frederick has previously said he would not run for re-election in the House, but is considering running for party chairman again at the state convention in late May.
