A former Green Beret is running against a former SEAL for a House seat

RICHMOND, Va. — Two former special operations personnel in Virginia are competing against each other for the Republican nomination in a deeply split congressional district.

Nick Freitas, a former Army Green Beret, announced Monday he’s running to be the GOP nomination in a Richmond-area district currently held by freshman Democratic U.S. Rep. Abigail Spanberger.

Freitas recently mounted a successful reelection campaign for his state House of Delegates seat after he failed to get on the ballot because he did not submit campaign paperwork on time.

John McGuire, a former Navy SEAL who is also a member of the state House, announced his congressional bid last month.

The district was reliably Republican until Trump’s election.
