Sam Rasoul Creating Quite a Buzz

The August Free Press and The Star City Harbinger (mostly SCH) have speculated on Sam Rasoul running for the Democratic nomination in the 17th District. Rasoul’s  residence in Blue Ridge, Virginia is not in the 17th but in the 19th District where Independent, Lacy Putney has been a popular member of the House of Delegates since 1962.

Rasoul ran for Congress against Bob Goodlatte in the 6th Congressional District in 2008.

An “Important Announcement” press release has stirred and excited the pundits which I suspect is just what Rasoul had in mind for his mystery announcement.

As the SCH likes to say “sources close to” are laughing about this buzz. I have no first hand knowledge about what his announcement might be. It is being held at Roanoke River Greenway parking lot at intersection of 13th Street SE and Bennington Street, Monday at 1:00 PM. Rasoul is heavily involved in youth organizations and Valley Character’s Interfaith Committee.

Excellent reporting lately, sister.
