Straw Poll: Fairfax Trounces Herring


    Justin Fairfax trounced Mark Herring tonight at the Democratic straw poll conducted this evening at the Meyera Oberndorf Central Library in Virginia Beach.  Democrats from Norfolk, Virginia Beach, Chesapeake, and Suffolk gathered to cast their ballots and by overwhelming margins chose Justin Fairfax over Mark Herring, 159 to 59.  

    Fairfax and his campaign continue their winning streak in straw polls throughout Hampton Roads, building a wall of momentum throughout Hampton Roads leading up to next Tuesday’s Democratic primary.

    Fairfax’s straw poll wins comes on the heels of Fairfax winning the endorsement in the AG’s race from the Washington Post, helping build further momentum in vote rich Northern Virginia.
