VIRGINIA BEACH, Va. – Republican State Delegate Scott Taylor announced that he is running for Congress today.

His announcement comes just days after Congressman Scott Rigell made it official that he will not seek re-election.

“We’re going to continue gage the community and see what they want,” he says. “If they want somebody like me to represent them, then I will humbly accept.”
