Rep. Denver Riggleman (R-5th) is considering a run for governor.

Denver Riggleman is not impressed by partisan extremes. If he runs for governor next year, it will be because he believes most Virginians share that distaste. 

Riggleman is a freshman Republican congressman representing the 5th District, which includes most of Fauquier County’s population; he is also a member of the congressional Freedom Caucus. However, he was unable to secure his party’s nomination for the seat after most delegates voted for challenger Bob Good at a drive-thru nominating convention in June.
