Virginia Primary Election Results August 23, 2011

Between an earthquake and waiting for a hurricane to arrive, Virginia held a primary election to determine the makeup of the field of candidates for the November 8, 2011 elections. These were mostly Virginia State Senate races, though there were some other contests.

The Republicans are hoping to gain control of the Virginia Senate this November to continue the Virginia recovery that the Democrats have been blocking with their big spending ways. And Republicans are off to a good start judging by the number of contests where they have fielded candidates versus the Democratic challenges.

Republicans will allow only 4 State Senate Seats to go unchallenged while Democrats were unable to mount a challenge in 13 races. And the Republicans have a number of strong challengers with good name recognition and stand a good chance of gaining seats in the Virginia Senate.

The results are unofficial, but all precincts are reporting. These results came from the Virginia State Board of Elections website.

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