Republicans in the City of Salem (City Government, Republican Committee) and parts of Roanoke County (County Government, Republican Committee) have nominated Greg Habeeb to succeed Representative-elect H. Morgan Griffith.
Habeeb will likely face Ginger Mumpower, if as reported in the Salem Times-Register, she is nominated tonight by the local Democrats.
Habeeb, a southwest Virginia native, and attorney with Roanoke-based GentryLocke, has come out swinging with a campaign up and running for the special election, which Gov. McDonnell is expected to call for Jan. 11, 2011, the day before the 2011 session of the General Assembly convenes.
