VA Senate Candidate Jennifer Wexton is kicking ass in special election!
With 70% of precincts reporting, she is up 52.67% to 37% (former repug running as independent is pulling 10%).
Looks like the good guys will control the Senate (20 - 20 with LG tie breaker).
5:24 PM PT: With 78.43% of the vote in Wexton leads 53%-37%-10%
A clean knockout!
5:41 PM PT: 90% and the margin is still the same.
New Virginia Attorney General Mark Herring just posted this on facebook:
I want to congratulate my good friend Jennifer Wexton on her hard-fought and well-earned victory. I could not be more proud to know that the citizens of Virginia’s 33rd Senate District will continue to be represented by someone who will always put problem solving over partisan politics and who will work tirelessly to strengthen our economy, improve our transportation system and who will support our public schools.
5:45 PM PT: The Washington Post just called it!
Between this unambiguous win and Gov Ultrasound getting indicted, it is a good day to be blue in the Old Dominion!!!
