Rep. Bob Good has won the GOP nomination for the 5th Congressional District, according to the Richmond-Times Dispatch.

Good — a conservative who touted endorsements from former President Donald Trump and GOP Rep. Lauren Boebert from Colorado, among others — won with 85 percent of the weighted vote among the 1,300 delegates who cast ballots at the party’s nominating convention Saturday at Hampden-Sydney College.

Good is seeking a second term in the U.S. House of Representatives.

“The Democrats control every lever of power in Washington. As a result of their policies, the cost of everything, from gas to groceries, to rent, is through the roof. I believe voters are going to give Republicans a chance to control Congress and stop the Biden agenda in its tracks,” Good said after winning the nomination.

In November, Good will face Democratic candidate Joshua Throneburg.
