Brad Tidwell announced last Thursday at a meeting of the Falls Church GOP that he intends to seek the Republican nomination in the 53rd House of Delegates district, which includes Falls Church City and parts of Fairfax County.
Tidwell is a former chair of the Arlington Falls Church Young Republicans and lives in Falls Church City. He is a member of the Falls Church GOP committee, where he is an executive committee member and webmaster, and is in charge of Party Liaison and coordination with other GOP groups in Virginia and nationally. Brad was a delegate to the Republican Party of Virginia convention in Richmond this past weekend, and he was elected Delegation Chair by his fellow delegates.
If successful in getting the GOP nod, he would face Democrat Marcus Simon, hand picked by retiring 53rd District Del. Jim Scott as his preferred replacement, in November, along with a Libertarian Party candidate, Anthony Tellez.
