The other contenders include small businessman Shak Hill of Centreville, consultant Chuck Moss of Prince William County, and congressional aide Anthony DaTora of Fredericksburg.  GOP activists will nominate a candidate during a June 7th convention in Roanoke. The Republican nominee will challenge freshman Democratic Senator Mark Warner in November.
