Corey Stewart, the chairman of the Prince William County Board of Supervisors, announced Thursday that he will seek the Republican nomination for Virginia’s U.S. Senate seat in the 2018 election.
Stewart, who nearly upset establishment favorite Ed Gillespie in the 2017 GOP primary for Virginia governor, promised to “run the most vicious, ruthless campaign to dethrone Tim Kaine from the United States Senate.”
“I was there in the Inauguration Day in 1989 when George H.W. Bush gave a speech and I was disgusted,” Stewart said. “I was disgusted at the phrase, ‘a kinder, gentler nation.'”
“The era of the kinder, gentler Republican is over,” he declared.
Running a Trump-style campaign, Stewart narrowly lost the 2017 GOP governor nomination to 2014 Virginia GOP Senate candidate Ed Gillespie, but he will continue to pursue his ambitions for higher office.
