Joshua Cole, the "son of the 28th," is a longtime resident and product of Stafford County and Fredericksburg. A pastor, educational aide, and a former staffer in the State Senate, Joshua has experienced the struggles faced by citizens of the Commonwealth.
As the first African American House Candidate in the 28th, Joshua will bring a 'fresh direction' to the region by ending the 30 years of Republican control over the seat.
House District 28The 28th is a "purple" district, with elections on the national level swinging back and forth between Democrats and Republicans. The district encompasses parts of Stafford County and Fredericksburg City. Winning here would be a particularly symbolic victory, as it is currently represented by retiring Speaker of the House Bill Howell (R).
