Republican Enters State Senate Race

A Republican has finally stepped up to run for state Senate in Arlington and Alexandria. Tim McGhee, an Alexandria resident, says he’s running for the 30th District state Senate seat.

McGhee currently works as a database administrator for The Falls Church and as a legislative analyst for Capitol Hill Prayer Partners. His resume also includes technology and facilities work for the Cherrydale Baptist Church and stints as the manager of two D.C.-area Radio Shack stores.

“Tim is an American with the heart of a Thessalonian, the soul of a Roman, the mind of a Berean, and the strength of a Colossian,” his personal web site says.

McGhee, whose parents were missionaries, quotes liberally from the Bible on both his campaign and personal web sites. He also quotes the Declaration of Independence, the Constitution and former presidents Reagan and Kennedy.

“This campaign is about spreading freedom and democracy in the 30th Senate District of Virginia,” McGhee writes. “As President Reagan said, ‘Now, I would appeal to you to invigorate democracy in your own neighborhoods.’¬† In these challenging times it would be most helpful to have people at the leadership table who are willing to put all options on the table — including prayer — and listen to each other.”

McGhee is expected to face the winner of a three-way Democratic primary between Del. Adam Ebbin, Alexandria City Councilman Rob Krupicka and Arlington School Board Chair Libby Garvey in November.
