Attorney General Updates

UPDATE 12/18/13: It’s a clean sweep! Mark Obenshain has conceded the race, meaning Mark Herring will be Virginia’s next Attorney General!

UPDATE 11/13/13: Mark Herring has a 163-vote lead for the final official total, meaning he has won! The results will undoubtedly go to a recount, but for now we can proclaim a clean sweep for Virginia’s statewide offices!

For the latest in the Mark Herring for Attorney General race, be sure to check out the official Virginia Board of Elections website. If you’re interested in the behind-the-scenes information, Dave Wasserman and Ben Tribbett have been invaluable in their dogged reporting.

Reorganization for 2014

Even though the election is over, there’s still work to do. Our own Fredericksburg Democratic Committee will undergo a reorganization, per DPVA rules, at the start of the new year. Our reorganization meeting will occur on Wednesday, January 8 at the Central Rappahannock Regional Library at 7 PM. At that meeting we will elect officers for the new year. Only members who turned in their membership forms and have paid their 2014 dues ($20) will be allowed to vote, so download the form at the bottom of this post and make sure to bring your dues with you on the 8th. See you then!

Thank You Fredericksburg!

Congratulations to Governor-Elect Terry McAuliffe and Lieutenant Governor-Elect Ralph Northam! And a hearty THANK YOU for making it possible! We won in every precinct of Fredericksburg – and we didn’t just win, but we gave our candidates a larger margin of victory than the state overall, proving our progressive bona fides once again. This couldn’t have happened without your tireless efforts, so please take a moment to congratulate yourself as well.

UPDATE: With final totals reported throughout Virginia, Mark Herring will be declared the winner in the Attorney General race, giving us a clean sweep!
