Del. Nick Freitas Announces Run For Congress

Del. Nick Freitas, R-Culpeper, is running for Virginia’s seventh Congressional district in an attempt to unseat Democratic Congresswoman Abigail Spanberger.

In an announcement on the John Fredericks Show, Freitas said that Spanberger campaigned as a moderate, but has consistently voted in line with House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Democratic leadership.

“I don’t think that’s what the Seventh District was expecting when they voted her in in the first place and I think it’s time that we need to take back the Seventh District for a conservative voice,” Freitas said.

The campaign released a video in which Freitas touted his military experience and said the nation is at a crossroads and needs someone courageous in Congress. Freitas has generally received support from the libertarian wing of the Republican Party because of his support for occupational licensing reform, criminal justice reform, and non-interventionist military policies.
