Robinson handily wins special election
Dr. Roxann Robinson has a new title, Delegate-elect. The Republican optometrist from Chesterfield easily defeated county Democratic party chairman Bill Brown, by capturing more than 70% of the vote in Tuesday’s special election.
Democrats chose to not invest much in this race, despite some evidence that the district may be starting to lean to the left. Democratic Party of Virginia Executive Director David Mills explained to the Washington Post why the party chose to push their candidate in the 26th District, which also had a special election tonight as well. The Democrats ended up losing both races Tuesday night.
