Barbara Comstock formally got her campaign for a second term in Congress underway Wednesday evening.
The Republican held a campaign kickoff event at the Sterling Volunteer Fire Station. She was joined by Frank R. Wolf, who served as the representative for the 10th Congressional District for 34 years before retiring in 2014. He then endorsed Comstock to take the seat.
During a brief speech, Comstock highlighted her work with local law enforcement to raise awareness about the heroin epidemic and human trafficking. She also touted legislation that is expected to pass the U.S. House next week that would label ISIS’s attacks on religious minorities as genocide.
In her bid for re-election, Comstock faces LuAnn Bennett, a Democrat from McLean.
