Republicans Win SD 22, HOD 85


Pack your bags, Mark Peake and Rocky Holcomb, because you are on your way to Richmond after winning Tuesday’s special elections in SD 22 and HOD 85.

With heavier than expected voter turnout in the 22nd and a ballot snafu that saw precincts running out of ballots during the day, it was 9:00 p.m. before the race was called for Peake, even as Lynchburg continued hand-counting ballots. The tally at 9:00 was 54%-37%.  Peake fills the seat vacated by now-Congressman Tom Garrett. This seat was for control of the senate so today’s win keeps it in Republican control 21-19.

In the 85th, Rocky Holcomb pulled ahead 53%-47% over his Democratic opponent to fill the Virginia Beach seat vacated in November by now-Congressman Scott Taylor. He will join the Republican-controlled House of Delegates.

With the Virginia General Assembly set to begin tomorrow, it will be a quick turnaround for these gentlemen as they pack their vehicles and drive to the capital city. The short session, held in odd-numbered years, will convene on Wednesday, January 11, 2017, and continue for 45 days.

Tuesday — Vote Mark Peake for State Senate

mark-peake-8Mark Peake, Republican candidate for the Special Election on Tuesday for the 22nd State Senate District, is out today in the snow, wind, and cold working with Peter Finocchio, going door-to-door to meet voters and ask for their support.

This race will decide the balance of power in the senate. If Mark wins, Republicans will have control. If he loses, it will be tied up 20-20 and the Democratic lieutenant governor will break the tie. It all comes down to turnout. General Assembly convenes the next day, Wednesday, January 11.

“Mark Peake would be an excellent addition to the State Senate, carrying on the conservative principals that are needed for Virginia. We need Mark Peake in the State Senate.” -Marty Williams, Immediate Past State President of the FOP of Virginia and 3rd district Congressional candidate
