FALLS CHURCH, Va. — Republican Bob Good has won his party’s nomination by a landslide to seek a second term in Congress representing Virginia’s 5th congressional district.
Good — a conservative who has touted endorsements from former President Donald Trump and GOP Rep. Lauren Boebert of Colorado, among others — won with 85% of the weighted votes among the 1,300 delegates who cast ballots at the convention of the party on Saturday at Hampden-Sydney College.
He was challenged by Air Force veteran Dan Moy.
Good will face Democrat Josh Throneburg in November. The district, which includes parts of central and southern Virginia, leans heavily toward Republicans.
Republicans held two more nominating contests on Saturday. In northern Virginia’s heavily Democratic 8th District, Ukrainian immigrant defense and intelligence expert Karina Lipsman won the nomination at a convention in Springfield with nearly 62 percent of the vote. Her nearest competitor, Kezia Tunnell, received 19%.
Lipsman will now face incumbent Democratic four-term candidate Don Beyer.
Eleven candidates are on the ballot in Virginia’s 10th District, where Republicans are holding a firehouse primary with a pick and choose vote to choose a candidate to take on Democrat Jennifer Wexton.
