Bocchiochi Wants to Be Somebody’s Number Two.
State Representative Penny Bacchiochi (R-Stafford) has been spreading the word that she’ll soon form an exploratory committee to seek higher office. The six-term legislator is letting colleagues and others know she’s got her eye on the 2014 Republican nomination for lieutenant governor.
Bacchiochi has been in hot pursuit of a political job that pays more than a seat in the House. The second spot on a statewide ticket would get her closer to that personal goal.
