Va Senate Battle On Again? 20-20 Tie?

It had looked like the race in Senate District 17 was close, but incumbent Edd Houck (D) had pulled it out, giving the Democrats continued control of the Senate, but a late adjustment shows Republican opponent Bryce Reeves in the lead 22,536 votes to 22,450 giving the Republican a margin of victory of 86 votes with 100% of the precincts in.

If this holds, the Republicans will take effective control of the Senate. With a 20-20 tie, Lt. Governor Bill Bolling will cast the deciding vote.

This is indeed welcome news for Virginia’s future if the results hold!

The Associated Press has a different total than the State Board of Elections, but the SBE is the final authority.

Interesting, indeed!

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.
