GOP birds flock to open seat

The number of Republicans jumping into the fray for the 17th House of Delegates district is growing. You'll recall incumbent William Fralin surprised his party by deciding to step down. The GOP flock now includes:
  • Josh Johnson, 29, a Roanoke lawyer
  • Melvin Williams, 36, a Roanoke lawyer
  • Mike Wray, 59, a Roanoke County supervisor
  • Chris Head, 46, a Botetourt County businessman
  • Bill Cleaveland, a Botetourt County lawyer
The only announced Democrat is Gwen Mason, 49, a Roanoke City councilwoman.
Both parties will nominate candidates at the June 9 primary. More in The Roanoke Times.
