Former Rep. Davis hosts dinner for Prince William Republican

By Jennifer Buske

Former U.S. Rep. Tom Davis (R) is hosting a dinner reception Wednesday for Prince William County Supervisor Martin E. Nohe, according to the Republican Party of Virginia Web site.

The dinner for the Coles District supervisor costs $100 a plate and will be at the home of Del. Richard Anderson.

Nohe has been on the board since 2003 and served as vice chairman in 2007. There has been some chatter lately Nohe may vie for Chairman Corey A. Stewart's seat next year along with Independent John Gray and current planning commission chair Democrat Gary C. Friedman, who both announced their plans to run earlier this year. Tito Muñoz, also known as 'Tito the Builder' also has said he is considering challenging Stewart in a Republican primary next year

Nohe, however, will not confirm or deny the rumors about his potential run for the chairman seat.

"The honest answer is right now we're not in an election year yet," he said. "I haven't made any decisions of what I am going to do. Right now I am focused on being the best district supervisor I can be. ...I'll worry about the next step when we get closer to the election."

We've also heard Davis, a moderate from Northern Virginia, is considering running against Democrat Sen. Jim Webb-if he seeks reelection. At least four other Republicans have already said they are interested in the challenge including Stewart, former senator and governor George Allen, Del. Bob Marshall (Prince William) and Bert Mizusawa, a businessman and attorney who ran against Rep.-elect Scott Rigell in Hampton Roads.

The Reliable Source has also reported Davis is a contender to be the top lobbyist at the Motion Picture Association of America.

Thank you for including mention of the Independent candidate John Gray.

Mr. Gray was a previous candidate in 200 for the Occoquan District in Prince William.

2011 is going to be an exciting year.

Delegate Anderson and Tom Davis may be ignorantly bliss to Martin Nohe's tactics of backstabbing citizens and fellow Republicans on thew PWC BOCS,but the voters in PWC are not.

Delegate Anderson I would not waste your capital and reputation helping Martin Nohe. This is one campaign respectable,law abiding, and fair minded individuals should not touch with a ten foot pole.
