Edward Whitlock Announces Candidacy for 12th District Senate Seat

Whitlock Announces for 12th District State Senate Seat


Glen Allen — In a statement released to the press, today local attorney and Republican activist Edward “Eddie” Whitlock, III announced his intention to seek the Republican nomination for Virginia’s 12th District Senate seat.


“I can serve this Commonwealth and nation I love by going to the front lines of our battle for the future. I want to stand with those who love freedom and protect the values and quality of life that we hold dear,” Whitlock said in his statement e-mailed to GOP leaders and activists throughout the district.


The 12th District seat is open owing to the retirement of 33-year incumbent Senator Walter Stosch.  A Republican primary will be held on June 9th to nominate a GOP candidate for the seat.


An outspoken conservative, Whitlock expressed a sense of duty to stand against Governor Terry McAuliffe’s liberal agenda.  “Conservatives currently have the votes to block McAuliffe’s agenda and protect Virginia values and pro-growth economic policies. But with Republicans holding control of the Virginia Senate by just one vote, that ability can slip away at any time,” he said.


Whitlock is a lifelong resident of the Richmond area. He attended Benedictine High School and is a graduate of the University of Richmond for both undergrad and law school.  He and his family attend St. Mary Catholic Church in Richmond.


“I will work to limit government to those responsibilities outlined under the Constitution” said Whitlock, “We should not let government pick winners and losers through over-regulation.”


Edward Whitlock is a partner at the law firm of Lafayette, Ayers & Whitlock, PLC, and

has been married to Mary-Alice for 28 years.  They have three children.


“In the next few months, I look forward to talking to Republicans across the 12th District about my conservative vision for the future of Virginia,” Whitlock explained, “And I look forward to keeping our Commonwealth and our nation strong.”

    Great- another criminal lawyer wants to go to Richmond to legislate.

    Get out of the race now- you are not conservative. Your law partner’s wife Laura Lafayette, a Far Left Liberal Democrat who worked for Doug Wilder and led the charge for MEALS TAXES in Henrico as a Lobbyist in her position of CEO of the Richmond Realtors Association, makes me scream: You are judged by the company you keep, buddy and you aren’t keeping company with conservatives at that Law Practice.

    The Grass Roots will never support you-

Nothing is more conservative than a republican wanting to get their majority back. And nothing is more liberal than a republican WITH a majority.
