Virginia’s “Trump In Heels” Launches Bid For US House

The Washington Post reports:

Virginia state Sen. Amanda Chase (Chesterfield), a Republican firebrand who has described herself as “Trump in heels,” will seek to challenge Rep. Abigail Spanberger (D) in the 7th Congressional District, she announced Wednesday morning.

Chase, who most recently ran a failed bid for the Republican nomination for governor, became at least the seventh Republican seeking to unseat Spanberger in what is sure to be a brawl of a primary season in one of Virginia’s most competitive districts.

She gave a speech in Washington on Jan. 6 hours before the Capitol insurrection, and then was censured by a bipartisan majority in the state Senate for praising the rioters who breached the Capitol as “patriots.”
