Tuesday, Oct. 29, 2019 — The man who won the Republican primary for magistrate and nearly beat the incumbent in 2018 announced his intention to challenge state Rep. Chad McCoy for the Republican nomination for 50th District state representative.

PHILIP H. BISCHOFF JR.

Boston-area resident Philip H. Bischoff Jr. announced in a press release that he will seek the Republican nomination for the 50th District representative, which now includes the whole of Nelson County.

Bischoff won his 2018 May Republican primary race against Selvey Vittitoe, and lost to the Democratic incumbent in November 2018 by a slim 124-vote margin.

According to the press release, Bischoff plans to only accept campaign contributions from individuals who live in Nelson County — no money from donors, groups or political action committees outside the county will be accepted.

Bischoff “has seen the continued broken promises of Chad McCoy and can no longer sit on the
sideline.”

He plans to oppose the move by the state legislature to add consumption taxes and eliminate tax breaks for corporations. He is pro-Life and a supporter of the Second Amendment right to bear arms.

If elected, he plans to take a common sense approach to legislation, and has adopted the slogan “Just A Farmer Looking To Make Things Right” as his campaign slogan.

According to the Secretary of State’s election calendar, Wednesday, Nov. 6, 2019 is the first day candidates can file for offices on the 2020 election ballot.
