U.S. Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) will be in Loudoun County this weekend in support of Virginia Del. Nick Freitas’ run for Senate.
Freitas, who is running for Democrat Tim Kaine’s U.S. Senate seat in the 2018 midterm elections, will hold a campaign rally from 1-3 p.m. Saturday at Beacon Hill Manor just outside of Leesburg.
Freitas is in his first term representing the 30th District in the House of Delegates, which includes all of Orange County and Madison County and part of Culpeper County. He is competing in Virginia’s Republican primary against former GOP gubernatorial candidate Corey Stewart and former candidate for Virginia Lieutenant Governor E.W. Jackson, to challenge Kaine.
In a statement announcing his endorsement of Freitas, Paul wrote: “Nick Freitas is the real deal and I urge liberty conservatives and those who believe in the constitution and limited government to rally to his cause and campaign. Through his involvement in politics and as delegate, Nick has stood firm to principles while showing he is willing to work hard and fight for what he believes in.”
Freitas, Stewart and Jackson will be on the Republican primary ballot Tuesday.
