A third candidate has announced he will face off against two others in a “firehouse primary” set for May 9.

Bill Haley will run for the Republican nomination for the 14th District Senate seat being vacated by Harry Blevins due to retirement. The other contenders are Delegate John Cosgrove of Chesapeake and J. Christopher Stearns, chairman of Virginia’s Third District Republican Committee.

Haley says on his website he endorses the principles of the tea party.
