86th District Republicans Nominate Gregg Nelson for Delegate

86th VA House of Delegates District

Fairfax, Virginia – Republicans nominated Gregg Nelson for the House of Delegates in District 86 today, during a meeting held at Fairfax Christian School in Dulles. The 86th District includes Herndon and parts of Fairfax and Loudoun Counties. Nelson will face Democrat Ibraheem Samirah in a special election scheduled on February 19.

“I’m honored to accept the Republican nomination for the House of Delegates,” Nelson said this afternoon. “For too long, the rights and interests of ordinary citizens have been ignored. I’m running to give the hardworking men and women of our district a voice in Richmond.”

Nelson is a U.S. Air Force veteran who later worked in the federal government. He currently owns a small business focused on natural disaster damage assessment. He lives in Fox Mill with his wife Lisa, and they have six children and seven grandchildren.

Tim Hannigan, chairman of the Fairfax County Republican Committee, lauded Nelson’s candidacy in a statement released this afternoon. “He’s exactly the right man for the job,” Hannigan said. “He’s a small business owner and a real-world problem-solver. If voters want someone who’s ready and willing to get things done, Gregg Nelson is their candidate.”
