Former Republican Rep. Scott Taylor of Virginia has been coy about his political comeback plans after losing his seat in 2018. It turns out, he has a good reason for doing so.
Taylor, 40, a former member of Virginia’s General Assembly, first won election to Congress in 2016. But two years later, the former Navy SEAL lost his seat to Democratic challenger Elaine Luria, an Annapolis graduate and 20-year Navy veteran, by 2 percentage points. That made Taylor one of three Virginia Republicans to lose reelection when Democrats took the House majority that year.
Taylor had been running for the GOP nomination to challenge Democratic Sen. Mark Warner
