Marshall Launching Bid For Virginia Senate Seat

Play associated audio

Virginia Del. Bob Marshall (R) is launching a bid for the U.S. Senate seat being vacated by Democrat Jim Webb. Marshall says he'll announce his plans and file federal campaign papers next week, but he has already registered his campaign committee with the State Corporation Commission.

Marshall enters a field of four candidates already in the Republican primary. This is the second time in four years Marshall is challenging a former Republican governor for his party's nomination.

In 2008, Marshall narrowly lost the race for the GOP nomination to former Governor Jim Gilmore.  Now, former Governor George Allen is trying to win back the Senate seat he lost 6 years ago to Democrat Jim Webb.  And Marshall has decided to try again.

Allen is thought to be the front runner. Allen and now Marshall are joined in the race by Tea Party organizer Jamie Radtke, E.W. Jackson and David  McCormick.
