Prince William County Board Chairman Corey Stewart just won reelection last month but he's already eyeing higher office.
Stewart said he will make an announcement in January about a run for statewide office -- an office in Richmond.
Earlier this year, Stewart considered seeking the GOP nomination for the U.S. Senate but eventually ruled that out. He recently endorsed George Allen.
Stewart's made no secret of his ambition to seek higher office. He won't yet reveal which job he'll seek, but today Republican State Sen. Mark Obenshain, who had been seen as a leading candidate for lieutenant governor, said he's exploring a bid for attorney general instead now that Ken Cuccinelli will run for governor instead of seeking reelection.
