CAMPAIGN NEWS: And then there were three….Amanda Wiseley to join CWA’s race

June 15, 2011

Breaking news: Amanda McDonald Wiseley, a lawyer with Wiseley McDonald Wiseley in Strasburg and Secretary of the Shenandoah County Republican Committee, is joining the race to become the next Republican nominee for the office of Shenandoah County Commonwealth’s Attorney.

We’ll have a better biographical profile up in a few hours, but this adds even more intrigue to a race that was already the marquee matchup for the Republican convention. We’ll have a breakdown later tonight of just how that’s going to play out, as the Committee is slated to issue its call to Convention this evening. That call will contain the delegate numbers for each precinct, as well as the the dates for the convention proper and the mass meetings. Stay tuned….this is just getting started.


As promised, a little bit of biographical background on Mrs. Wiseley. Amanda, age approximately 31, is partner, with her husband, at the law firm of Wiseley McDonald Wiseley in Strasburg, VA, which handles a variety of criminal defense and civil matters. She attended Strasburg High School and the University of Virginia, earning her law degree from T.C. Williams School of Law at the University of Richmond. She previously practiced law at Bowles, Rice, McDavid, Graff and Love in Winchester. She has been admitted to both the Virginia and West Virginia State Bar. She has three children (two from her husband’s previous marriage) and is expecting a second around August. Mrs. McDonald Wiseley is actively involved with athletics at Strasburg High School. She has served as Secretary of the Shenandoah County Republican Committee since 2005. Her campaign facebook page can be found here.
