WASHINGTON — (WMAL) Corey Stewart, the current Chairman of the Board of Supervisors of Prince William County, Virginia, said he will be taking a step back from politics for the time being and will not be seeking reelection.
“I will be moving on to other things, but I will not get out of politics all together, forever,” Stewart told WMAL. “I do want to support the president and I do want to support the Republican cause here in the Commonwealth of Virginia.”
While Stewart said he would not be running for office anytime soon, the Virginia Republican did mention he would be supporting the president strongly in Virginia in 2020.
Stewart also said the GOP has been going though a hard time in Virginia, but he is optimistic about the future of the party in the state. Back in November, the Virginia Republican lost to Democratic Sen. Tim Kaine in a Senate race.
“As time goes on, things move in cycles,” Stewart told WMAL. “I think the Republican party will make a resurgence, but I think that will happen in 2020 when President Trump runs for reelection.”
Moving forward, Stewart said he will be focusing on his career in law as a rainmaker, among other things.
“I love politics, but there comes a time that I need to fall back and focus on other things, including my own family,” Stewart said.
