Davis, Mumpower Both Lose Special Elections


    Both of the special election races today were tough ones, in generally strong Republican districts, and a win by either Democrat running – Hank Davis in the 19th State Senate district or Ginger Mumpower in the 8th House of Delegates district – would have been an extremely pleasant surprise. Also, if either Democrat had won, it would have meant a pickup for the “blue team.” In the end, though, (sadly) it was not to be. Here are the results from the State Board of Elections.

    State Senate 19th District

    William M. Stanley, Jr. (R): 10,287 (61.42%)

    Henry A. “Hank” Davis (D): 6,430 (38.39%)

    House of Delegates 8th District

    Gregory D. Habeeb (R): 6,569 (63.52%)

    Ginger R. Mumpower (D): 3,747 (36.23%)

    Thanks to both Hank Davis and Ginger Mumpower for running, sorry it didn’t turn out better!
