A third candidate has emerged to primary State Senator Emmett Hanger in the 24th Senate District that includes Augusta County. Dan Moxley, chairman of the Augusta County Republican Committee, has entered the three-way GOP primary that also includes Marshall Pattie.
It has been rumored for months that Moxley intended to enter the race. Virginia Public Access Project (VPAP) confirmed on Friday although no official announcement has been forthcoming from Moxley (see 2015 General Assembly candidates emerge).
There are rumors a third candidate to challenge Senator Hanger may emerge in the near future.
