Mark Warner wins!

On November 4th, Senator Mark Warner was reelected to another six years as one of our two senators from Virginia. (The other is Democratic Senator Tim Kaine.)

The race was closer than expected, apparently due to low turnout by Democrats.

Unfortunately, neither Norm Mosher, who was the Democratic candidate for the 1st Congressional District (part of which is in the southern part of the county; incumbent Republican Rob Wittman won) nor Lawrence Gaughan, the Democratic candidate for the 5th Congressional Disrict (most of the county; incumbent Republican John Hurt won) was able to overcome the low Democratic turnout and Republican gerrymandering that have made the districts very conservative.

The voting results for the 5th Congressional District for Senator Warner and Lawrence Gaughan can be seen here.
