Democrats Win City Seats

Democrats have won all of the Charlottesville elections, unsurprisingly. Delegate David Toscano easily defeated independent challenger R.B. Smith, James E. Brown bested independent Paul Best in the sheriff’s race, and Mayor Dave Norris secured reelection while ticket-mate Kristin Szakos joined him in defeating independents Bob Fenwick and Paul Long. Statewide Democrats were pummeled in most of the state (the numbers are still coming in, but “bloodbath” is probably in appropriate word), but there’s no sign of that in Charlottesville, with Sen. Creigh Deeds, Jody Wagner, and Steve Shannon all winning the local vote by a 3:1 margins. If the city is true to form, it’ll have the second-highest performance rate for Democrats, with Petersburg coming out on top.
