The Republican opposing Congressman Rick Boucher isn't running this fall simply because he thinks that he can win, it goes much deeper.
Mike Osborne says he's taking on the longtime Democrat because it's the right thing to do.
Osborne, who's an ordained minister, received the Republican nomination Saturday at the Ninth District G-O-P convention.

The tobacco plant on a county seal is sparking some controversy in one northern Virginia county.
The chairman of Prince William County's Board of Supervisors says the county should have a more positive image on its official seal.
But supporters say the symbol has been part of the county for 65 years and represents the county's history.
The board will make a decision on the issue sometime this summer.
