Freitas wins 7th District Republican nomination. Faces Spanberger in November
Culpeper Delegate Nick Freitas will be on the ballot to represent Virginia’s 7th Congressional District in this November’s election, after winning a majority of delegates in the district’s GOP convention Saturday at the Meadow Event Park in Caroline County.
Freitas, who represents Madison, Orange, and a portion of Culpeper Counties in Virginia’s House of Delegates, won the right to represent the Republican Party after a lengthy convention process. He emerged victorious on the convention’s third ballot, defeating several of candidates including Del. John McGuire, Tina Ramirez, Andrew Knaggs, and others. The convention was held “walk-through,” style due to coronavirus pandemic, in an effort to avoid crowding and maintain social distancing.
Freitas will take on Democratic incumbent Rep. Abigail Spanberger in November.
