WASHINGTON (AP) - A northern Virginia congressional candidate is working to correct an apparent breach of congressional ethics rules.

The Washington Post (https://wapo.st/1wcx8TW ) reports Barbara Comstock failed to disclose that a public-relations company she owns took in $85,000 in 2012 trying to help Republican Mitt Romney become president. A Comstock aide told the paper Friday that the oversight was unintentional and that the campaign is working to correct the problem.

Comstock is a Republican state delegate representing parts of Fairfax and Loudoun counties as well as owner and partner in Comstock Strategies, a public-relations company. Comstock’s federal financial disclosure report does not mention $65,000 Comstock Strategies received in 2012 from the Romney campaign or $20,000 paid by the Republican National Committee. Those groups reported the fees in their own disclosure reports.
