FALLS CHURCH, Va. (AP) — Republican U.S. Rep. Bob Good has overwhelmingly won his party’s nomination to seek a second term in Congress representing Virginia’s 5th Congressional District.
Good, a conservative endorsed by former President Donald Trump, won with 85% of the weighted vote. Roughly 1,300 delegates cast ballots at the party’s nominating convention on Saturday, May 21.
Good was challenged by Air Force veteran Dan Moy.
Good will face Democrat Josh Throneburg in November.
In northern Virginia, Ukrainian immigrant Karina Lipsman won the GOP nomination Saturday in the heavily Democratic 8th District. She’ll face Democratic incumbent Don Beyer.
Also Saturday, 11 candidates are on the ballot in the 10th District, where Republicans are holding a firehouse primary to see who will face U.S. Rep. Jennifer Wexton, a Democrat.
