Fairfax prosecutor Horan to quit after 40 years

Fairfax Commonwealth's Attorney Bob Horan announced yesterday that he will call it quits after 40 years on the job. The Washington Post reports that Horan, 74, had been concerned that a gradual hearing loss would affect his performance in the courtroom. Both parties will be scrambling to field candidates before Friday's filing deadline, although Ray Morrogh, Horan's longtime chief deputy, has said he would seek the Dems' nod if his boss did not make another run.
