State-NewsRICHMOND, Va. (AP) _ Republican state Sen. Jill Holtzman Vogel says she’s running to become Virginia’s next lieutenant governor. Vogel told The Richmond Times-Dispatch that running for the office in 2017 is “awesome opportunity.” She says the Republican party needs to get its “mojo back” and that she would bring a fresh perspective as a working mother. The 45-year-old lawyer and mother of six was re-elected to her third term in the state Senate in November. Vogel represents the 27th District, which includes Clarke, Fauquier and Frederick counties, the city of Winchester and part of Culpeper and Loudoun and Stafford counties.
