According to Anita Kumar of the Washington Post’s Virginia Politics Blog, Delegates Tim Hugo (R-40, Fairfax) and John O’Bannon (R-73, Henrico), are running to fill the House Republican Caucus chairmanship, vacated by the soon-t0-resign Delegate Sam Nixon (R-27, Chesterfield), who is leaving the House to become the new director of the troubled Virginia Information Technology Agency. She reports that Majority Whip Kirk Cox (R-66, Colonial Heights) is supporting Hugo, while Speaker Bill Howell (R-28, Fredericksburg) and Majority Leader Morgan Griffith (R-8, Salem) are neutral. The vote, among Republican members of the House of Delegates, will take place April 21, before the General Assembly reconvenes for its veto session.
