Eugene Vindman — the twin brother of Alexander Vindman, who orchestrated an impeachment inquiry into former President Donald Trump — is running as a Democrat for a U.S. congressional seat in Virginia, according to a report.
Semafor reported Wednesday that Vindman, a retired U.S. Army colonel, is expected to announce a run for Congress in Virginia’s 7th congressional district to replace Rep. Abigail Spanberger (D-VA), who is running for Virginia governor.
VoteVets, a group supporting progressive veterans posted that they are endorsing him:

Vindman had previously told Axios in October that he was considering a bid and that he is “focused on Ukraine funding” and “war crimes.”
“That’s all I’m focused on,” he said.
