Earlier today, Congressman Tom Davis announced that he would not seek re-election this November. In response to this announcement, Lieutenant Governor Bill Bolling issued the following statement:
“I was very disappointed to hear that Congressman Davis will not seek re-election this November. There is no smarter, hard working or dedicated member of Congress than Tom Davis. I know that Tom has enjoyed his public service a great deal, and I know this was a difficult decision for him and his family. I wish them all the best.
“Congressman Davis served the people of Virginia with distinction for many years. As a member of the United States Congress, Tom has worked to find solutions to the challenges we face as a state and a nation. He has made a significant difference in improving the quality of life for his constituents in Northern Virginia. His service will be missed, and his shoes will be hard to fill.
“Now, our attention must be directed toward finding a candidate who can carry on in the tradition Tom established, and make certain that the people of the 11th district continue to enjoy aggressive and effective mainstream representation in Congress. I look forward to working with Republican leaders in Northern Virginia to make sure this happens.”
