Fearer drops out, caucus set on June 8

Todd Fearer stepped aside today from his 7th District race for the House of Delegates. He said campaigning proved too stressful for him and his family, and he endorsed Rhonda Seltz, a healthcare advocate who also teaches part-time in the Radford University School of Social Work. Dr. Fearer’s statement.

Our 7th District Nominating Committee set a caucus for June 8 in case another Democrat wants to contend with Seltz for the nomination to oppose the Republican Nick Rush in the November 12 election.

The caucus will be held at 2 p.m. at the Montgomery County Government Center, 755 Roanoke St., Christiansburg. Doors will open at 1 p.m. Call-to-Caucus
