RICHMOND, Va. -- Entrepreneur and former Fox News contributor Pete Snyder has joined the crowded field seeking the Republican nomination for Virginia governor.
The CEO of a capital investment firm, Snyder said in a campaign video released Tuesday morning that he was running as an innovator, disruptor and problem solver seeking to shake up state politics after “eight years of failed leadership” by Democrats in the governor’s mansion.
