According to an e-mail sent out by Charlottesville Republican chair Bob Hodous (and a conversation with the candidate), Tom McCrystal has pre-filed for the Republican nomination for the House of Delegates. As the only guy to do so, that makes him their man. He’s the vice president of Creative Perspectives, a media shop located downtown. McCrystal will be going up against the winner of the Democratic primary, to be held on June 14, which is a three-way race between Rich Collins, Kim Tingley, and David Toscano.
Disclosure: I’ve volunteered my time for Rich Collins and I’ll inevitably volunteer for whomever wins the nomination, but I might also write Tom a little check because then he can’t say that I never did nothin’ for him.
