I'm hearing she won by something like 130 votes!

and it looks like Tyler wins in district 75, up some 300 votes with only one precinct to report...

And Barg is leading by single digits in district 52!

Guess I was wrong. A win is a win thought.

AWESOME!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Another defeat for anti-abortion, anti-gay extremists!!!!

The true pro-family, pro-child candidates in Virginia are actually winning -- David Poisson, Katherine Waddell. And while the odious Bob Marshall will be back, Bruce Roemmelt has done an amazing job -- he outperformed Kaine's Democratic performance in almost every precinct! In such a Republican district as the 13th, that's a great thing.
This is amazing.

I'm not one to gloat, but after being called out by the CD4 GOP chair about how Marrs would slaughter Waddell because folks south of the river don't voter for folks north of it, I do feel somewhat vindicated. Petty biases against a person's locale is not a virtue.

At any rate, even if this election goes to a recount and Marrs prevails, the fact that Waddell put together a coalition of Democrats and moderate/centrist Republicans to pull even with a sitting conservative sends a message loud and clear. This should be one of the many lessons that the GOP takes heed of over the next 2-4 years. It should also be a lesson to Democrats about the kind of candidate that will win in suburban districts.

Chesterfield County no longer uses punch cards - they use optical scanners.
