STATE-NEWSRICHMOND, Va. (AP) _ Republican state Sen. Jill Holtzman Vogel says she’s running to become Virginia’s next lieutenant governor. Vogel told The Richmond Times-Dispatch that running for the office in 2017 is “awesome opportunity.” She says the Republican party needs to get its “mojo back” and that she would bring a fresh perspective as a working mother. The 45-year-old lawyer and mother of six was re-elected to her third term in the¬†state Senate in November. Vogel represents the 27th District, which includes Clarke, Fauquier and Frederick counties, the city of Winchester and part of Culpeper and Loudoun and Stafford counties.
