WAVY: Aaron Rouse not seeking re-election, switches campaign for State Senate in newly created district

City Councilman Aaron Rouse is running for Virginia Beach’s next State Senator from the 22nd District. Rouse will not seek re-election to the City Council this fall.

Rouse announced his campaign on social media Monday afternoon for the newly created district where currently no incumbent state senators live.

The former NFL player was elected to the Virginia Council as an at-large member back in 2018.

“It’s time to elect a new generation of leaders to fight for Virginia Beach families,” said Rouse in a tweet Monday announcing his campaign.

Rouse has already garnered support from federal, state, and local elected officials including U.S. Congressman Donald McEachin, former Delegate Nancy Guy, and Virginia Beach Councilman Guy Tower.
