Alexandria City Council Elections

Alexandria held an election for city council yesterday. In the Democrat strong hold where Obama received 72% of the vote in the presidential election, two Republicans were elected to the six seat City Council. Tim Lovain (D) lost to Frank Fannon (R) and Justin Wilson (D) was defeated by Alicia Hughes (I) a Republican-backed independent. Hughes, a patent examiner, could not seek the party’s formal endorsement because she works for the federal government.

Fannon said winning along with Hughes was especially significant.

“To get anything discussed, you need to have a second vote. It was very important. If I were the only one up there, it could have been a lonely spot,” Fannon said.

Last month, John Cook (R) won the special election to the Braddock District board of Supervisors, which has been a Democrat seat forever.

Republican gains are showing that even in Northern Virginia, the policies of Obama are seen as failures and the Democrats message is being rejected all over the state, which is a good indication for the state wide elections this fall.

Tom White Says:

Nothing is more conservative than a republican wanting to get their majority back. And nothing is more liberal than a republican WITH a majority.
