Joshua Cole makes history as the official Democratic Nominee for Virginia House of Delegates 28th District
Election history was made today in Stafford and Fredericksburg. Joshua Cole, a candidate for the Virginia House of Delegates 28th District, is now the official Democratic nominee for that elected position. He is the first African-American and the youngest candidate to ever win the Democratic nomination for House District 28. Earlier today, the 28th House of Delegates District Democratic Nominating Committee cancelled the Unassembled Caucus scheduled for May 21 at the Berea Firehouse. Cole was one of two Democratic candidates to file, but the other candidate dropped out in early April. Cole is now the official Democratic candidate and nominee for the 28th House of Delegates District.

“Here in Fredericksburg, one of the strongholds of the confederate army, here in Fredericksburg, one of the stalwarts of the segregation movement back in the day,” began Rev. Joshua Cole at the Unite FXBG Rally on Saturday (March 25) at Fredericksburg’s Hurkamp Park. “Today we stand on the ground of our history. Our past has become the fertilizer of where we are today. That dirt became the strength we needed to stand today for unity!”
More than a month ago, Rev. Joshua Cole announced his candidacy to challenge Speaker Bill Howell for his seat in the Virginian House of Delegates. Cole formally entered the race on Jan. 20 and declared his desire to represent all Virginians in House District 28. Howell, who 12 years ago appointed Cole as a Page for the House of Delegates, has since announced his retirement and will not be running for re-election.
Please join Joshua Cole and his Campaign team as he officially announces his intent to run for Virginia House of Delegates - 28th District. Light refreshments will be available. Joshua will greet residents, speak informally about his plans for the future of the 28th District and Virginia, and talk with reporters.
