Wade, McEachin to seek 4th District seat in Congress


Henrico Sheriff Mike Wade and Virginia Senator A. Donald McEachin (D-Henrico) have announced their intentions to seek the newly-redrawn 4th District seat in the U.S. Congress.

Wade will seek the Republican nomination and McEachin the Democratic nomination for the position, which is being vacated by Republican Randy Forbes, who will seek election in the 2nd District, which Republican Scott Rigell will vacate.

The 4th District was realigned by a three-judge panel in January, following a decision by the panel in 2012 that state legislators had included too many African-Americans in the 3rd District (which includes Eastern Henrico), thereby reducing their numbers in other nearby districts. It redrew both districts to address the issue.
