You probably hadn’t heard, down here in Henry County, but our Representative, Tom Garrett, announced Tuesday he had filed for the Republican nomination to seek a second term representing the 5th Congressional District. Garrett is from Buckingham County between Lynchburg and Richmond, south of Charlottesville. Garrett is the only Republican to announce so far. Five democrats have announced, four of them from the Charlottesville area and one from Rappahannock County which is northeast of Charlottesville and not far from Washington, D.C. The 5th Congressional District encompasses 23 Virginia localities including the eastern and northern parts of Henry County.
