Senator Adam Ebbin won with 90 votes, followed by Alexandria Mayor Bill Euille with 68 votes, former Virginia Lt. Governor Don Beyer with 62 votes, Del. Patrick Hope with 58 votes, Del. Charniele Herring with 21 votes, Lavern Chatman with 12 votes, Mark Levine with 8 votes, Satish Korpe with 3 votes, Derek Hyra with 2 votes, and Bruce Shuttleworth with 1 vote.

  • Adam Ebbin: “Thanks to everyone @PortCityBrew 4 @AlexVADems Straw Poll WIN!. Let’s take this victory tonight into June. Join us!”

    Bill Euille: “Our momentum is building!!! Of the nearly dozen candidates vying to replace Jim Moran in Congress we finished 2nd @ the ADC 8th District Straw Poll. A decisive leap from where we were a few short weeks ago and a great indicator of where my campaign is headed. Strong leadership on the job everyday determined to leave no one behind. Thanks to all those who attended and special thanks to my new and growing campaign team, and all of our volunteers and supporters. There’s more excellent and exciting news to come soon so please stay tuned. God bless and congratulations to the ADC and all in the race for a fine event. Bill”

    Ben Tribbett of Patrick Hope’s campaign: “Eight of the ten candidates left in the race have Alexandria addresses- and Patrick Hope beat five of them tonight on their home turf!”

    I haven’t seen any comments by the campaigns of Don Beyer (who finished 3rd), Charniele Herring (finished 5th), Lavern Chatman (finished 6th), Mark Levine (finished 7th), Derek Hyra (finished 9th), Satish Korpe (finished 8th) or Bruce Shuttleworth (finished last).

    Patrick Hope gave a great, energetic stump speech and had a big following, with a vote total highest among the non-Alexandria, home turf candidates. Shout out to the Alexandria Democratic Committee for hosting a terrific event at a great venue. I’ve been wanting to visit Port City Brewery. Good food on hand (especially the Cuban sandwich) and a great tasting of Port City’s brews!
