Candidate Caleb Max Is Running for 10th Congressional District Race

For 34 years the residents of Virginia’s 10th Congressional District were represented by Republican Frank Wolf. When he retired, Republican Barbara Comstock won the seat before being swept out by the 2018 blue wave when Democrat Jennifer Wexton was elected and then reelected in 2020.

Now former Congressman Wolf’s 24-year-old grandson is running in a crowded field of candidates to represent the newly redrawn 10th (Potomac Local [1]):

Caleb Max, a Loudoun County businessman [2] whose running for a congressional seat once held by his grandfather Republican Frank Wolf, is an early favorite.

Following a Republican congressional candidate forum [3], last night in Loudoun County, a poll conducted by the state GOP showed Max as the favored candidate among the 11 Republicans running in a Primary Election to unseat Democrat Jennifer Wexton.

Max, 24, received the highest percentage of votes in the informal poll, followed by Brandon Michon who came in second place.

Other candidates who have qualified for the May 21 Republican primary include Manassas City Council member Theresa Coates  Ellis, Prince William County Supervisor Jeanine Lawson, Loudoun County businessman Mike Clancy, retired Air Force Lt. Col. Clay Percle, Loudoun County school board member John Beatty, Air Force veteran David Beckwith, U.S. Navy veteran Hung Cao, Air Force veteran John Henley, Jeff Mayhugh, and Brandon Michon.

The newly redrawn 10th Congressional District includes Fauquier County, Loudoun County, Rappahannock County, part of Prince William County, part of Fairfax County, and the cities of Manassas and Manassas Park.
