State Senator Bryce Reeves, R-17th, becomes Albemarle’s second legislator to announce a run for statewide office in 2017. Delegate Rob Bell, R-58th, said in December he’d make a second run for attorney general.

At a March 7 kickoff, Reeves said, “Public service is in my blood.” The owner of an insurance company in Spotsylvania, Reeves is a former Army Ranger and Prince William County narcotics detective. He was narrowly elected to the seat that represents eastern Albemarle in 2011, and was reelected in November.

Reeves touts his leadership skills, notably on the gun compromise Governor Terry McAuliffe signed that recognizes concealed carry permits from other states.

He joins Senator Jill Vogel, R-27th, who two days earlier announced her candidacy for the Republican lieutenant governor nomination. Reeves has the endorsement of 37 members of the General Assembly, including Delegate Matt Fariss, R-59th. Not on his list: Bell and Steve Landes, R-25th, Albemarle’s other Republicans in the House of Delegates.
