Word came this week that two more Republicans in the 6th District will be challenged by Democrats.
24th House District:
Ellen Arthur, an attorney who practiced law for 35 years in Lexington, announced that she will run for the 24th House District seat that is currently held by Ben Cline (see Lexington attorney Ellen Arthur to challenge Del. Ben Cline in the Roanoke Times). Ms. Arthur, who will kick off her campaign on April 2 in Lexington, Staunton, Amherst, and Bath County, is particularly driven by Cline’s opposition to the expansion of Medicaid in Virginia.
