Lt. governor candidates
Davis hits the road as Reeves, Vogel dispute lingers.
It’s been 12 days since Bryce E. Reeves, a Republican candidate for lieutenant governor, went public with information alleging one of his rivals, Jill Holtzman Vogel, was involved with an email that accused him of having an affair.
The tension between the GOP state senators lingers; a lawyer for Reeves this month sent Vogel and her husband a letter threatening a defamation lawsuit.
The third candidate for the nomination, Del. Glenn R. Davis Jr. of Virginia Beach, hasn’t weighed in. As Vogel and Reeves continue to risk political damage from the dispute, Davis continues campaigning for the June nomination.
“I understand what causes entrepreneurs heartaches,” he said. “I can’t be something I’m not. I won’t do red meat.”
