The 11th District House of Delegates has another contender for the Republican Nomination according to Roanoke City Republican Committee Chair John Brill.

The committee will be approving the call for the Firehouse Primary to select a nominee to run for the special election to oppose the winner of the Democrat’s nominee expected to be selected at a caucus on December 7.

The seat is being vacated by Delegate Onzlee Ware, a Democrat.

The date for the Republican Firehouse Primary will be determined Friday, November 22 at noon. The committee will meet at the Law Office of Melvin Williams.

The date for the Firehouse Primary is expected to be December 10 according to Delegate Greg Habeeb.

John Brill in the call stated:

“This will be a contested race. At this point Octavia Johnson and Caleb Coulter have announced their intention to seek the Republican nomination for Delegate District 11. I am pleased to say that I have known both of them for a few years now.

I have known Octavia Johnson since 2009. I helped her by designing her campaign materials for 2009 and 2013, by going door to door for her, and more. I have been impressed with the job that she has done in the 8 years she has served as our sheriff and by her professionalism, integrity, and determination.

I have known Caleb Coulter also since 2009. From then til now I have seem him be one of the most steadfast liberty activists in the Roanoke area. He helped in both Ron Paul’s 2008 and 2012 campaigns. In 2012 the State GOP Convention unanimously elected him and 8 others to be a part of the Virginia Delegation to the Republican National Convention in Tampa.

Because of what I have seen of both of them I can confidently say that our party will be well served by whomever our party decides to nominate”
