Webert announces 2023 reelection bid in redrawn district

-

Del. Michael Webert, a six-term Republican in the Virginia House of Delegates’ 18th District, announced on Friday that he will seek reelection next year in the recently redrawn 61st District, which includes all of Rappahanno­ck County and parts of Fauquier and Culpeper Counties.

“I look forward to earning your support next year and continuing to serve you in the House of Delegates to ght for our shared conservati­ve values,” Webert said in a statement. “I remain committed to preserving our natural resources, ghting for our constituti­onal rights, protecting our children from being indoctrina­ted, supporting legislatio­n to keep our communitie­s safe and protecting our rst responders, and upholding my oath to the U.S. and Virginia Constituti­ons.”

The redrawn districts, approved by the Supreme Court of Virginia late last year, go into e ect following the 2023 general election. The new 61st District includes most of what is currently the 18th District, but no longer comprises part of Warren County.

The redrawn district also includes a portion of Culpeper County in an area currently represente­d by Republican Del. Nick Freitas in what is now the 30th District. Freitas announced on Facebook that he will seek re- election in the newly redrawn 62nd District that includes most of the 30th District.

“I hope that the voters of the 62nd District will vote to send me back to Richmond to represent our community and the values of individual liberty, free markets, and adherence to constituti­onal limitation­s on government power,” Freitas said in a statement.
