Those candidates include; Ed Gillespie, former Chairman of the Republican National Committee, businessman Denver Riggleman, Corey Stewart, Chairman of the Prince William Board of County Supervisors, State Senator Frank Wagner, Lieutenant Governor of Virginia Ralph Northam, and former U.S. Representative Tom Perriello.

All have been invited on the CBS 6 News at 7:00 to speak with Bill Fitzgerald.
