Derrick Anderson, Former Special Forces Green Beret and Attorney, Announces Intentions to Remain in Virginia’s New 7th Congressional District
SPOTSYLVANIA COUNTY, VA – Following the final release of Virginia’s new Congressional district lines, Derrick Anderson announced that he will remain a candidate for the Republican Nomination for Virginia’s 7th Congressional District. Derrick Anderson is a native of Spotsylvania County, a graduate of Courtland High School, was in the Corps of Cadets at Virginia Tech, and received his J.D. from Georgetown Law. He is a former Special Forces “Green Beret” with 6 tours of duty overseas, including Afghanistan, Iraq, and various countries throughout the Middle East.
“This district is my home. My entire family still lives in Spotsylvania County, the place I was raised, the place that shaped me into the person I am today. I am running to guarantee an end to the extreme agenda of Democrats in Washington, whom Abigail Spanberger is in lock step with, and not allow us to continue down this road of failed policies that eliminate jobs, make our communities unsafe, and our country weak on the national stage. Abigail Spanberger can no longer represent the people who raised me,” said Anderson. “I will not remain silent on the sidelines, that’s why I’m continuing my run for Congress to bring the needed leadership to Virginia’s 7th Congressional District.”
