Augusta Supervisor Announces State Senate Candidacy

Posted: Updated:

A longtime Augusta County leader is hoping to move up in the ranks. Marshall Pattie officially announced his candidacy for the Virginia Senate Monday.

For years Pattie's been a well-known figure on the Augusta County Board of Supervisors. He's also a professor of business at James Madison University.

He announced his candidacy Monday at Reo Distribution in Waynesboro. The decision will have him running in the 2015 Republican primary. He'll be taking on longtime state Senator Emmett Hanger, who was a major player in the recent state budget battle.

Pattie calls himself a longtime fiscal conservative but he hasn't always been a Republican. In fact, he was an active Democrat until the spring of 2011.

He says he's been attending Republican meetings for more than two years now, and will be running as one in 2015.
