Republican from Virginia
Del. John O'Bannon, R-Henrico, was elected to the Virginia House of Delegates in 2000, filling a seat that Republican Eric Cantor left that year to make a successful run for Congress.
O'Bannon, a neurologist, was born in Richmond and got his medical degree from the Medical College of Virginia -- now known as Virginia Commonwealth University School of Medicine. His wife, Patricia, is a long-serving member of the Henrico County Board of Supervisors.
