Del. Bill Carrico, R-Fries, will officially announce his intention to seek party nomination as a candidate for Virginia's 40th district senate seat on Monday morning.
In a news release e-mailed Sunday morning, Carrico announced that he'll hold a press conference 10 a.m. at Virginia Highlands Airport in Abingdon.
Carrico is considering a run for state Sen. William Wampler's seat this fall.
Wampler, a Republican, announced Friday that he will retire after serving 24 years in the Virginia General Assembly.
