Amy Frederick for Delegate

After much speculation over whether or not Jeff Frederick would keep his promise and resign from the House of Delegates, we finally know the answer.  Amy Frederick is running for delegate.  

It seems that for as long as I can remember, the rumor was that Amy Frederick would replace her husband when he moved on.  Recently Hampton Roads GOP reported that Jeff Frederick would run for reelection, and Bearing Drift predicted that Amy Frederick would be the one to run for the seat.  Today a website was launched to draft Amy to run for Delegate, and Jeff Frederick is inviting people to sign the petition through RPV Network.

We now no Jeff Frederick is a man of his word, and while people argued that if he became chair we would lose the seat, I think we have a very good chance of winning the seat.  His wife is likable, smart, and knows the district well.  

For those who argue that she isn't running yet, but only being drafted, a draft campaign can be a very effective way to start off a campaign.
