A familiar face is throwing his hat in the ring for the Valley's senate seat. Senator Kevin Miller recently decided he wouldn’t run again when his term is over.
Tuesday morning, Mark Obenshain announced he's seeking the Republican nomination. Obenshain is a lawyer in Harrisonburg, he says he and Senator Miller have discussed this and feel it's in the best interest of the Valley.
Obenshain's biggest issue will be state revenues. He says he does not want to raise your taxes.
"I firmly believe that we need to do a better job of spending the resources that we have in hand and that's an issue I will continue to fight upon," Mark Obenshain says.
The district includes most of Rockingham County, the City of Harrisonburg, Shenandoah, Page, Rappahannock and Warren counties.
