Accomack County businessman Robert Bloxom, Jr. has become the Republican nominee for an upcoming special election for the  House of Delegates. Bloxom defeated Melody Scalley of Eastville during a weekend GOP convention at Nandua High School on the Eastern Shore. He will face Democrat Willie Randall of Northampton County in a February 25th special election. Bloxom’s father represented the same coastal communities in the House of Delegates for more than 25 years. The winner of this month’s contest will succeed Democrat Lynwood Lewis, who had to vacate his House seat after he won a January 7th special election for the State Senate. The House of Delegates (pictured) has 100 members. The other 99 seats are occupied by 67 Republicans and 32 Democrats.
