Nelson County, Virginia
In a heated race against other republicans, Nelson County distillery owner Denver Riggleman snagged the spot to run as the republican in the 5th district U.S. Congressional seat in November.
U.S. Representative Tom Garrett bowed out of the race last week after announcing he was battling alcoholism.
Riggleman tried to snag the republican nomination to run for Virginia governor last year, but eventually dropped out of the race.
