GOP House Candidate Now Runs Unopposed in the 60th District

David Guill, the Democratic candidate for the 60th District House of Delegates race, announced Saturday he is withdrawing from the race leaving GOP candidate James Edmunds unopposed in his bid for the seat currently held by Republican Delegate Clarke Hogan.
In bowing out of the race, Guill said obligations and responsibilities to his family, job, community activities, and the citizens he represents as a member of the Charlotte County Board of Supervisors are very important to him and “must come first.”

Guill, who serves as Halifax County Public Schools transportation director, thanked the many individuals who have encouraged and supported him after he announced from the Halifax County Courthouse steps in April he was seeking the seat.

At that time, Guill named economic development, jobs and ensuring appropriate state funding for services among his objectives.
