It was a decisive victory for Eddie Whitlock who won the open chairman seat at Tuesday night’s Henrico County Republican Committee mass meeting held at Deep Run High School. A large crowd of 667 registered to participate in the election between Whitlock, who received 410 votes, and his opponent Jim Herring, who received 235 votes.
Whitlock, who is a graduate of the University of Richmond T.C. Williams School of Law, practices as a partner at Lafayette, Ayers, and Whitlock, and has been involved in Republican politics. His Facebook page on Wednesday was full of congratulations from supporters who wished him well as he began his two-year term.
